The sexual abuse of innocent, vulnerable children is one of the most disturbing facts confronting modern society. No other crime produces such strong feelings of revulsion and outrage and - in the absence of clear and balanced information on the subject - anger, fear and confusion still dominate the public debate.
In the caring professions, however, are people whose work with both abused and abusers has given them a unique insight into the problem. Among these is Olive Travers, a community care psychologist who has helped to pioneer the first community-based programme in Ireland for the treatment of adult male sex offenders. In 'Behind the Silhouettes' she draws on her long experience of helping victims and abusers, and on her knowledge of current research and theory, to dispel false perceptions of sexual abuse in an objective sensitive account to the general reader.
Challenging popular mths about sexual abuse, this important new book answers deeply troubling questions and suggests how responsible adults can help to create a safer world for children.
