Adult Survivors of Sexual Abuse
Treatment Innovations



April 1995 | 214 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The contributors to this book are all clinicians who have experienced working with people who have been severely sexually abused. In their quest to reduce human suffering, they have developed practical and effective methods of treatment, which they describe in this volume.

Following a clear review of dynamically based theories which help in the understanding and treatment of adult survivors, topics discussed include survivors' sexual problems, such as compulsivity, and clients with special needs, such as survivors with personality disorders. Clinicians will find much of value in this practical volume.
