FALLOUT

From FALLOUT: A Survivor Talks to Incest Offenders (and Others) by moi:

Q: How did dealing with incest affect the rest of your life? A: What rest of my life? –Bass and Davis, 1994??????

The first draft of this book contained no references. It was my experience, my story. Then I realized how easy it would be for incest perpetrators to discount me and my words, especially since they would not want to believe what I had to say. Thus I turned to the research and literature in order to validate my experience and observations, although that decision added years to the project.

The primary purpose of this book is to foster empathy and understanding on the part of offenders  for survivors in order to decrease the likelihood of reoffending. This book also has the potential to answer some llingering “whys” for survivors. (p. 133)

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
