If you're a survivor, it's important to take one day at a time. Let "101 Tips for Survivors of Sexual Abuse" be your companion in healing and you'll be reminded of the strength and wisdom that's already inside you. This book will help you celebrate the good days and develop solid coping strategies for the bad times. Most importantly, this book will remind that you're not alone and it was never your fault.


Amy Barth's background is in social work and she founded the Safe Girls Strong Girls in 2005.

101 Tips For Survivors of Sexual Abuse: A Pocket Book of Wisdom

Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (5/09)


“101 Tips for Survivors of Sexual Abuse” is a twenty-three page book that does not waste one word.  Small enough to be carried around in a purse or briefcase, this book touches on the subject of sexual abuse.  Each tip addresses a different issue that a victim might be dealing with or have dealt with.  By reading the tips, I felt that survivors of sexual abuse will be easily be able to relate to most of them and in doing so, they will also know that they are not alone with whatever feelings they are experiencing.  This would especially apply to the painful areas of feeling guilt and shame.

Each tip has a paragraph space underneath it which will also allow the reader to make personal notes for themselves.  This will be helpful because as they go through their recovery, they will probably be experiencing a myriad of emotions at different times. By taking notes, they will be able to address the feeling that they are experiencing at that moment in time, and they will also be able to look back and reflect on how far they have come with their recovery.

At the end of the book is a list of suggestions and exercises for people to do when they are having bad moments.  There is a suggested reading list. I think that all of these will make excellent tools for people who need some guidance when they are dealing with their painful thoughts and negative emotions.  It will give them something practical to do to help with their healing. 

I think that “101 Tips for Survivors of Sexual Abuse” by Amy Barth will be perfect for both individuals, family members and for people in group therapy.  The information within is highly personal, however, it would make great discussion material for both family members in recovery and for group counseling sessions.
