John's new book, #DEALWITHIT shipping NOW!

IF I CAN, YOU CAN #DEALWITHIT.

“#dealwithit is a book for anyone who has lost it all. If you have been shot at, faced with sudden loss, blown up, screwed over (or in my case, screwed), this book is for you. I like to think of it as duct tape for the soul.” —Dr. John A. King

#dealwithit is the honest, raw, not-safe-for-work account of Dr. John A. King trying to piece his life back together, move forward and thrive after the spontaneous recall of over a decade of childhood sexual abuse by his parents and their friends. This recall event, or John-A-Geddon, was followed by the immediate onset of Complex Post Traumatic Stress, which led to the loss of his marriage, career and health.

This book shares John’s gritty process of rebuilding his life. On his journey, you’ll find practical tools, unlikely mentors and his trademark Aussie sarcasm. #dealwithit is the perfect book for anyone who is getting up to go again, or is in the middle of the fight and just needs to hear, “You can make it.”

do you see him ?

I wrote this piece after touring with a documentary on human trafficking that featured my story, Stopping Traffic. At every show, I was confronted with questions bordering on accusations that sexual abuse and rape doesn’t happen to boys and men. In some overseas countries, the abuse and trafficking of boys and men exceed the violation...

The purpose of Give Them a Voice is to give a voice to those that do not have one, to educate those who do not know, and to defend those who cannot defend themselves.

The vision is to establish a collective of skilled individuals and cooperating organizations who are committed to addressing the hard topics of the effects of pornography, sexual abuse and human trafficking.

Updates on the fight against trafficking around the world, and heroic stories of recovery.
