Sexual Abuse of Children: Selected Readings.
Jones, Barbara McComb, Ed.; And Others
This volume of selected readings contains a wide range of materials on the subject of child sexual abuse. The eight chapters in Part I, written by the staff of the Child Protection Center, Children's Hospital National Medical Center, Washington, D.C., discuss the etiology and short-term management of child sexual abuse, describe an approach to crisis intervention services, and provide an outline of suggested case management procedures to be implemented upon intake and throughout the crisis phase of treatment. Materials in Part II deal specifically with incest, treatment and interviewing techniques, and sexual exploitation of children for commercial purposes. Several of the chapters focus on the problem of father-daughter incest and the issues associated with the long-term treatment that is often required in such cases. Many different perspectives concerning various theoretical and clinical aspects of child sexual abuse are presented. A collection of writings by adult and teenage victims of child sexual abuse is also included. The appendices contain several different hospital protocols developed to aid medical personnel in the physical examination and diagnosis of child sexual abuse cases, and a list of child abuse and neglect treatment programs that are equipped to treat child sexual abuse.
