Description - Treatment of Adult Survivors of Incest by Patricia L. Paddison
This volume is designed to broaden the clinician's treatment options and provide education on the multidimensional approach to the treatment of incest survivors. It examines the relational issues that abound in individual as well as group treatment of incest survivors, focusing on incest survivors where family issues complicate the treatment process; presents an overview of group treatment; examines the results of a group outcome study at the Mount Sinai Medical Centre Rape Crisis Intervention Programme; and provides a brief review of the prevalence data on sexual abuse. The text also explores dissociation, suggesting practical approaches to symptom formation and offers a systematic format that covers when to intervene with medications, what medications to use and for what duration of treatment.
