Coauthored with Beverly Holman, it was the first book to devote itself entirely to the sexual repercussions of sexual abuse.

Colorado Section Update

Neil Cannon reports that the Colorado Holiday Party in December, held on December 5, 2016, was a great success. This party always features a "naughty cake" -- that is, an actual cake with a sexually suggestive "naughty" decoration or design with the icing on the top. He did not send me a picture of this year's cake, like he did last year, but I bet if you emailed him, he would send you a pic. Or maybe not...evidently, the cakes are so "naughty" that he may not be able to send such photos through email! :)
