Product Description

From the Back Cover

There is a growing awareness that the number of women who sexually abuse children is greater than we once thought, and little exists in the current literature to guide practitioners working with these women and/or their victims. Based on in–depth research and clinical practice, this book aims to raise further this awareness by providing information as to the ways in which these women can and do sexually abuse, and, by considering the possible motivations, to lead ultimately to more effective assessment and intervention strategies. By means of interviews, construct grids and questionnaires the author provides a profile of these women—their lives, childhood, own abuse histories, adult relationships with partners, peers and children, social stresses, support networks and coping strategies. This provides a sound basis for treatment as well as indicators for early detection and prevention. The women’s attitudes, beliefs and opinions are reflected throughout and the research is illustrated with relevant case material. Wiley Series in Child Care and Protection Edited by Kevin D. Browne The University of Birmingham, UK, and Margaret A. Lynch Guy’s Hospital, London, UK

Women Who Sexually Abuse Children 14 Feb. 2000
By "clyde171" - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent book, which, along with Female Sexual Abuse of Children (ed. Elliot) and When She Was Bad (Pearson) should be in every clinician's, policy maker's and law enforcement worker's library.
