Geffner, Richard, Ed.
Family Violence & Sexual Assault Bulletin, v11 n1-4 1995
This document consists of the two combined issues of this serial (FVSAB) published in 1995: n1-2 and n3-4. Number 1-2 begins with editorial comments regarding the development of standards to regulate the treatment of batterers and to regulate therapy in sexual abuse cases. The first article in this issue focuses on gender-based abuse and discusses the power dynamics that underlie the gender-role socialization at the root of much of this abuse. The second article describes a university-based workshop in interdisciplinary approaches to child abuse and neglect, and the third article presents an event-focused model for preparing children to testify in court. Number 3-4 begins with editorial comments on the need to develop and implement assessment-based intervention. The first article in this issue describes the findings of a 1991 survey examining client utilization of and satisfaction with services provided by child abuse counselors. The second article deals with evaluating child sex abuse allegations, and the third article discusses gains and process in state batterer programs and standards. Both issues contain reviews of books and media dealing with abuse and extensive classified guides to family violence and sexual abuse literature. (References accompany each article.) (CR)
