Don't Tell examines the effects of sexual abuse on the emotional and sexual life of men, including their sense of self and their personal relationships. Using the first-hand accounts of victims Dorais shows that certain reactions are specific to male victims of abuse as they attempt to preserve a sense of physical integrity and masculinity. He also provides innovative strategies for both prevention and treatment that will be of use to those who have suffered abuse as well as to their families and all those who are trying to help them - spouses, friends, social workers, and therapists.

Contains real and graphic stories of males who have suffered sexual abuse as children. The author, Michel Dorais knows his topic very well, and succeeds in identifying some of the common outcomes of various sexual abuse backgrounds.
We are fortunate that this book has been translated into English (from French).
