A Sourcebook on Child Sexual Abuse

A Sourcebook on Child Sexual Abuse

Other Titles in:
Child Sexual Abuse

July 1986 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`An invaluable directional guide to such thorny issues as the `prevalence of sexual abuse, children at high risk, offenders, effects and prevention' - New Society

`Exemplifies social science at its best. This sourcebook is thoughtful and knowledgeable, without being patronizing or condescending to the practitioners who must act on a day-to-day basis' - Journal of Marriage and the Family

`Eagerly awaited by the professionals involved in the field and does not disappoint... The student is provided with a bible which will serve well as a guide through the minefield of often contradictory literature on child sexual abuse' - Social Work Education

`An excellent resource because it is a comprehensive gathering of facts of child sexual abuse spanning the past ten years. It would be helpful to anyone involved in the intervention or research of child sexual abuse. It is an excellent overview for students' - Family Violence Bulletin

`Unique, up-to-the-minute, and indispensable for anyone who needs to understand what is known and not known about sexual abuse' - Murray A Straus, University of New Hampshire

`Researchers, students and service providers will appreciate the comprehensiveness and the organization of data in Finkelhor's book' - Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences

As David Finkelhor says:

`There is an enormous present demand for reliable information about sexual abuse, and this book will fill it. It demonstrates that far more is actually known about the problem than is generally thought'.
