November/December 2001Vol. 2, No. 6Female Sex Offenders: What Therapists, Law Enforcement and Child Protective Services Need to Know

Hislop, J. Idyll Arbor, Inc., Ravensdale, WA. 2001. 254 pp. $35.00. Paperback.

Though not well documented, there is growing evidence that female sex offenders are more prevalent than was previously thought. Due to the nurturing and protective role women have in society, the damage done when women commit offenses of a sexual nature against children can be particularly harmful. The author examines the causes and effects of child sex abuse perpetrated by females, rates of offending by female sex offenders and problems defining child sexual child abuse and gathering data in this context, and diagnoses and treatment of female sex offenders.
