Child Sexual Abuse Books from Cleanan Press Now Available on iTunes


Cleanan Press has made three important books about child sexual abuse by psychologist Dr. Lynn Daugherty available on iTunes.

Roswell, NM, January 22, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Three important books from psychologist Dr. Lynn Daugherty, including her award-winning bestseller, "Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now)," are now published as ebooks by Cleanan Press, Inc. on iTunes. This self-help book, and her other two ebooks, "Child Molesters, Child Rapists, and Child Sexual Abuse" and "Child Molestation Stories: Voices of Survivors," have been available for Kindle (readable on Mac, PC, Android, Blackberry, etc) for over a year, where they remain consistently near the top of several bestseller lists. All are also available on NOOK and Kobo.

Dr. Daugherty wrote "Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now)" to bring hope and help to abuse survivors. This book helps former victims understand what happened to them in simple, everyday language and provides step-by-step guidance to begin healing and recovery.

In "Child Molesters, Child Rapists, and Child Sexual Abuse," Dr. Daugherty addresses the questions, “Why would anyone sexually abuse a child?” and “How does it happen?” She describes studies and models explaining how child sexual abuse takes place and illustrates the information with first-person stories from abusers and abuse victims. Her goal is to help the general public make sense of allegations such as those currently in the news.

Male and female victims share their experiences of abuse so that other victims will know that many children have had similar experiences in Dr. Daugherty’s concise ebook, "Child Molestation Stories: Voices of Survivors." This brief ebook emphasizes a key message all survivors need to hear, “You are not alone.”

Child sexual abuse is a difficult issue many would rather not address. Perennial concerns about abuse in the Catholic Church and recent allegations against prominent coach Jerry Sandusky at Penn State force it into the public eye, however.

“At least one in four girls and one in six boys becomes a victim of child sexual abuse in our country,” explains Dr. Daugherty. “This means that more than twenty-five million adults in the United States today were sexually abused as children.”

“While allegations of child sexual abuse like those frequently in the news are heartbreaking,” Dr. Daugherty commented, “they raise vital public awareness of this common but often-neglected problem in our society. We can hope that they will motivate more people to take steps to stop this abuse of children.”

Clinical and forensic psychologist Dr. Lynn Daugherty has been bringing hope and healing to child sexual abuse victims and their families for more than twenty-five years. A former National Science Foundation Fellow, adjunct university professor, and internationally respected expert on child sexual abuse, Dr. Daugherty has published research in a variety of professional journals in addition to writing for the general public.

"Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now)" is available in paperback from online booksellers and through local bookstores. It is now available from iTunes, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo as an ebook, as are "Child Molesters, Child Rapists, and Child Sexual Abuse" and "Child Molestation Stories: Voices of Survivors." Extensive excerpts and additional information about child sexual abuse appear at www.cleananpress.com.
