🏆 2020 BIBA® Non-Fiction: Self-Help/Overcoming Abuse Winner! –
How to Master Your Inner Superman uses the DC comic book superhero Superman to help male survivors of childhood sexual abuse understand and heal from their childhood trauma.
This self-help guide explores the use of internal family system therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy to conquer the need to cope with the trauma of childhood sexual assault through the use of living life behind the façade of a false identity.
Kenneth Rogers uses writing exercises, his own autobiographical stories, and the different identities of Clark Kent, Superman, and Kal-El throughout DC comic books as an extended metaphor to help guide male survivors toward understanding how to save their inner Superboy and heal their childhood sexual abuse.
