Family Violence & Sexual Assault Bulletin, 1996.
Geffner, Robert, Ed.
These two Bulletins contain selected articles that highlight research and treatment issues in child abuse and child sexual abuse. The first issue includes the following featured articles: (1) "The Relationships between Animal Abuse and Other Forms of Family Violence" (Phil Arkow), which addresses animal cruelty as a harbinger of psychopathology and as a component of family dysfunction, and describes opportunities for multidisciplinary intervention; (2) "A Hegelian View of the 'False Memory Syndrome Hypothesis'" (Donald G. Barstow), which discusses False Memory Syndrome as an inexorable response to international attention focused on child victimization; and (3) "An Exploratory Study of a Sexual Abuse Prevention Program for People with Developmental Disabilities" (Sheryl Robinson Civjan and Joseph Hughey), which describes a study that found significant differences in self-efficacy among persons with mental retardation who received sexual abuse prevention training and those who did not. The second Bulletin features: "A Solution-Focused Approach to Child Abuse" (John Leverington), which presents strategies for implementing this intervention approach; and "The Pervasiveness of Maladaptive Attributions in Mothers At-Risk for Child Abuse" (Lisa P. Reiss Miller and Sandra T. Azar), which describes a study that found high-risk mothers ascribed more responsibility to other people for their negative behavior when compared to low-risk mothers. (Each article includes references.) (CR)
