Description

Child sex abuse is a minefield of complexity and confusion for all involved. A genuinely multidisciplinary problem, it requires the close co-operation of a wide range of people with different tasks, from the clinical treatment specialists through to the police and legal system. Tilman Furniss, a leading figure in the field of child sexual abuse, has written a unique, practical handbook designed for all professionals involved in the treatment and care of sexually abused children and their families. Based on fifteen years' innovative work, this book will help professionals develop knowledge and skills to deal with their particular task, and at the same time help them to understand the effects of their actions on the work of other professionals.
