January 2002Vol. 3, No. 1Creative Responses to Child Sexual Abuse: Challenges and Dilemmas

Richardson, S. (Editor); Bacon, H. (Editor). Jessica Kingsley Publishers, London, England. 240 pp. $26.95. Paperback.

Despite heightened media attention and improved professional knowledge about child sexual abuse, some children's needs are still being left unmet. Using attachment theory as a foundation, various authors provide in-depth examinations of the acute practice dilemmas concerning children who, despite the climate of increased awareness, multi-disciplinary cooperation and legislative and procedural change, cannot easily be protected. Professionals, mothers, and survivors give guidelines for working with these children, particularly those who are unable to disclose their experience themselves and are the most difficult to support. Illustrated throughout with case material and informed by the experiences of the survivors themselves, the contributors to this volume present a framework for integrated intervention with children, their families, and the community.
