The Merry-Go-Round of Sexual Abuse: Identifying and Treating Survivors


Add your own review!

Overview

This is a guide to identifying, treating and breaking the cycle of sexual abuse. Based on 30 years of professional experience in treating offenders and survivors of sexual assault and sexual molestation, Dr. Prendergast provides step-by-step guidelines and specialised treatment techniques most effective in producing change in this group of clients. Each technique is illustrated with pertinent case studies. This guide is intended for professionals who often lack specific training in the identification and treatment of both offenders and survivors of sexual abuse. Prendergast identifies the survivors of sexual abuse, explores the why sex inquiry and discusses the characteristics of the abuser. Each topic is treated by first presenting a fact or principle which is illustrated with a case study that exhibits the principle in practice. A broad range of topics essential to the treatment of offenders and survivors of sexual abuse are clearly explained in this book, including: 18 factors to be considered when working with survivors of sexual abuse; behavioural effects of unresolved but consciously remembered sexual abuse and unidentified sexual trauma; specialised interviewing techniques for survivors of sexual abuse; specific treatment techniques for four different categories of sexual abuse - homosexual abuse (both seductive and assaultive), assaultive sexual abuse, incest and long-term seductive sexual child abuse; self-confrontation as a new therapy approach for survivors; aftercare continuation and consistency; and therapist qualifications and cautions.
