Secret Survivors: Uncovering Incest and Its Aftereffects in Women

E. Sue Blume, Author John Wiley & Sons $27.95 (326p) ISBN 978-0-471-61843-0
Addressed to victims of incest--here defined to include sexual abuse by friends or caregivers--this is a realistic and sensitive study. New York psychotherapist Blume speaks to victims who have blocked childhood memories of abuse, and sets out to help them cope with ``Post-Incest Syndrome,'' which encompasses depression, guilt, substance addiction and sexual dysfunction. Survivors will also benefit from the author's perceptive advice on rebuilding self-esteem as a preparation for resuming friendships and sexual relations. (Feb.)
