Additional Book Details

If you′re looking for new and innovative ways of working with survivors of child and adolescent sexual abuse--or child/juvenile perpetrators of sexual abuse--then look no further. Mic Hunter and a talented team of professionals begin by offering concise, practical discussions on topics related to survivors, including managing self-regulation disorders in sexually abused boys, treating ritual abuse survivors, and inpatient treatment of adolescent survivors of sexual abuse. Next, the contributors focus on treating the child/juvenile offender, examining such issues as treating abuse reactive children, parallel treatment for parents of abuse reactive children, societal responses to sexually aggressive children, and identifying and responding to juvenile sexual abuse offenders. For each issue examined, contributors offer concrete directions for intervention.
Written both for practitioners and advanced clinical students, this accessibly written volume will serve as a valuable resource.
"This book is like going to a conference and getting all the best presentations. . . . Models a nice concrete technique for use with a problem population."
--Sandra K. Hewitt, Ph.D., Private Practice, Edina, Minnesota
"This excellent short paperback contains well-written, well-referenced chapters by leading figures in the field of child abuse and neglect, covering an ambitious range of topics involving child survivors as well as children who sexually abuse other children. This small book is a timely and important addition to the sexual abuse literature, and will be of particular interest to those professionals working with children and young people who show sexually coercive or abusing behaviour towards other children."
--Eileen Vizard in Young Minds Newsletter
"The book is subtitled "treatment innovations" and this sets the tone for its whole approach. This is a readable and practical book written for clinicians, and is obviously based on much solid clinical experience. The chapter on ritual abuse is particularly good, being both readable and thought provoking. It is a very thorough examination of the difficulties which can arise in working with severely abused people, and tackles very realistically the potential risks for both client and therapist, when working with very damaged individuals. The thorny issues surrounding the validity of recovered memories are also tackled extremely well. Overall the book is an excellent review of current understanding and treatment of sexually abused children and adolescents. However, clinicians working with adult survivors of abuse will also find much that is useful in the book."
--Carol Sellars in Clinical Psychology Forum
