Titles by Hannah

Titles by Hannah Baker

In these profound books, Hannah draws upon her teenage diaries to provide rare insights into her real-life experience of child abuse. Tailoring her books to the different reading levels of a young child, teenager and adult, Hannah describes her experiences of the criminal justice system and the ongoing impacts of the abuse on her life. She provides crucial advice for those who are experiencing abuse and/or those who are supporting young people who may have been abused, as well as her ideas on how abuse can be better prevented and responded to in the future.

'Dealing with Sexual Abuse: A Young Australian's Insights' was first released as an e-book in May 2014. Since then, this updated and comprehensive book has been widely used in the fields of child protection, youth work, mental health, education (primary, secondary and tertiary), abuse prevention, criminal justice and policy reform; as well as by parents, carers and survivors of abuse.
