Praise for Rewind, Rebound:
"Finally! A hands-on and very practical book that focuses on a frequently neglected segment of our treatment population: Teenage boys who have experienced sexual abuse. Using real life scenarios and relevant case examples that will appeal to our young male clients, Ms. Loiselle and Ms. Wright offer up a fantastic book of clinical wisdom for practicing psychotherapists. I will use Rewind, Rebound as a regular companion and resource in my therapeutic work." - S. Christopher Woodes, L.C.S.W.
"Rewind, Rebound is a clear and comprehensive walk through of the dynamics and impact of sexual abuse. It is specifically written to and for teenage males. It is addressed in a clear voice teens can easily relate to. Rewind, Rebound is a must-have for practitioners working with teenager males. Look especially to the chapter on Resilience to add significantly to what you already know about this population." - Cassandra Hulihan McLaren, L.C.S.W.
