Summary

Treating Children with Sexually Abusive Behavior Problems: Guidelines for Child and Parent Intervention is a unique, pioneering venture in the area of sexual abuse. Unlike most books on sexual abuse, which focus on children as victims, this integrated treatment approach suggests ways to develop parallel treatment strategies for both parents and children who display harmful sexual behavior.

In many ways a first in its field, Treating Children with Sexually Abusvie Behavior Problems gives you the tools to orchestrate your own treatment and intervention techniques, specifically for those children under age 12 who display sexually harmful or unlawful behavior. You’ll find in this useful volume a one-of-a-kind approach to linking together individual, group, and family treatment into one integrated, comprehensive program that treats both perpetrator and victim in tandem. Effective applied techniques are presented to teach:
  • accountability of the offending party
  • concern for others/empathy
  • social competence
  • the establishment of appropriate boundaries
  • healthy sexuality
  • coping with prior trauma
  • safety and supervision

    Treating Children with Sexually Abusive Behavior Problems is intended for professionals in child sexual abuse; graduate and undergraduate students in psychology, social work, marriage and family therapy, and psychiatry; juvenile court workers; child welfare case workers; teachers; attorneys; and judges. It will also serve to better inform the victim, family, and general public. If you’re concerned about the spread of sexually abusive behavior in children, you’ll want to become informed and armed with the practical and useful guidelines found in this innovative approach to a prevalent social problem.
