Description - Female Survivors of Sexual Abuse by Christine D. Baker
How can we treat survivors of sexual abuse more effectively? Sexual abuse against females is a serious problem in society and there is a need for a greater understanding of the presentation and treatment of adult survivors of sexual abuse. In "Female Survivors of Sexual Abuse", Christine Baker combines her clinical experience with an innovative approach to the treatment of this problem. The book addresses the experience of 180 female adults who were sexually abused in childhood, and provides detailed analyses and treatment approaches. The subject matter is presented in an accessible and compassionate way, imparting personal opinion and experience. It covers: female survivors - their stories, and the evidence; integration, the alliance and the therapist; the survivor's journey to recovery; and the families, disclosure and the role of the mother. This work enables the reader to "enter" the experience of the survivors and follow their progress to recovery, while highlighting the ever-changing state of knowledge in this difficult area. It should be useful to practitioners and students of clinical psychology, counselling, and psychiatry.
