Autopsy of an ordinary crime

19,90 €
Rape is an ogre that guzzles children. The poison thus distilled infiltrates the soul until it is disrupted, sometimes irreversibly. Stéphanie Dautel suffered it in her flesh at just 12 years old. For a long time, she thought she was the only one to have experienced this hell. Having become a specialized educator, working with adults in great exclusion, then at Child Protection, she makes the edifying observation that sexual crimes against children, far from being exceptions, are bitterly “ordinary”. Benevolently telling dozens of stories experienced by those she accompanied, the author performs the autopsy of this ordinary crime. She apprehends the different issues related to sexual abuse, the unconscious adaptations to support the inner chaos and the survival reflexes that are put in place to the detriment of the individual.
