Increasing public awareness of incest and child sexual abuse has focused attention on the many children who suffer from the unwanted sexual attentions of fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends of the family, neighbours or youth leaders. Of necessity, priority is being given to helping those children that are currently being sexually abused. But although increasing numbers of children appear to be disclosing their abuse, there are probably many more children who do not, as well as the many who have grown to adulthood without ever disclosing their abuse. Although little research has been specifically directed at retrospective treatment intervention with adult survivors, its importance is beginning to be recognized. "Counselling Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse" examines the theories which attempt to account for the occurrence of child sexual abuse, explains the traumatic impact of child sexual abuse, and looks at the ways in which these effects can be ameliorated and the adult healed. Treatment techniques and the role of the counsellor in employing these techniques are also discussed in such a way that the counsellor can make use of the book not only as a review of current theory, but also as a practical handbook for use with clients who may be adult survivors of child sexual abuse.

..."this excellent book...strikes a good balance between theory, data and practical advice for workers and includes illustrative case material and practical strategies for counsellors...It conveys both the experiences of survivors and the enormous amount that can be achieved. It is a stimulating and optimistic book which would be suitable for all workers in this important area." -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

    I found this book was great for survivors and counselling victims. With in-depth detail details what happens to the body during abuse

  • By Wendy Allchin on 23 November 2009

    An absolute must for those who are counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. The book is easy to read and very well laid out.I have found it extremely useful.

  • By Chrissie on 30 July 2011

    I am a counsellor currently working with this issue and although I've extensively read and researched this subject I feel that this book combines it all. There are also sections relating to specific symptoms which is really helpful. This book gives me all the information and understanding I need in order to help my client make sense of what happened, her behaviour now and the work we need to do. I am so relieved to have discovered this book and cannot praise it highly enough.

    Impact and effectsCounselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse (3rd edn)CHRISTIANE SANDERSONLONDON: JESSICA KINGSLEY: 2006; Ps £25.00 (ISBN 978 1 853 10 335REVIEWED BY Miriam LandorTHE third edition of this helpful book is shaped by current research and the author's clinical experience and links current knowledge inchild sexual abuse (CSA) with its impact and long-term effects. The aim is to explorehow clinicians can best work with presenting symptoms. The key message is thatCSA and its impact will vary enormously betweenindividuals. and that each experience is unique. There is a wide range of CSA acts. andthe child's age and temperament,the relationship of the child to the abuser and the quality of the child's other interpersonal relationships will contribute to how CSA is experienced and processed and to what meaning is attributed.There are therefore many different long-term effects of CSA some of which may contrast sharply with others. The author warns against making premature assumptions which could contaminate the survivor's material. Counsellors should develop a good understanding of recurringthemes whilst retaining the sense of each individual's experience.The first four chapters of the book deal with general understanding of CSA and its impact and long-term effects,and of adult survivors and howto work with them. Different therapeutic models are discussed, with a clear emphasis on the importance of communication and empathicattunement. There follow chapters on key specific issues surrounding CSA - trauma, dissociation, memory. self-harm, the shattered self, shame and sexuality. Finally there is achapter on professional issues. There is a great deal to take in, as the book has over 400pages, but the effort is well worthwhile.Miriam Landor is aneducational psychologist.

    If you're the victim of child abuse then this book is a must read. It's a hefty book, but you will not need to buy another on the subject! Well worth the money.

    The first thing this book does is debunk some important myths about child sexual abuse. It says that, contrary to general belief, most child sexual abuse (CSA) is done by someone known to the child and that stranger abuse is rare. It specifies that only about 15% of cases of CSA are one-off incidents by strangers. Firstly, I don't call 15% rare, I call it a minority. Secondly, I am concerned that there is little further mention of stranger CSA in the rest of the book. Even if only 1% of CSA is by strangers, the survivors will need support, and counsellors, at whom the book is aimed, will want to provide it. In this otherwise very good book, stranger CSA is air-brushed out - just because something is rare, it does not mean it does not exist, and I feel that a new myth is being set up: that stranger CSA doesn't exist.Stranger CSA is rare in societies where both children and public spaces are well supervised and policed, but it is not rare in societies where there is less taboo on rape, or where law and order are erratic, such as in war. Survivors may be refugees or immigrants. Moreover, older children, such as young teenagers, are quite vulnerable to stranger CSA when they begin to rebel against home - is the fifteen year old who gets sexually assaulted in a park late at night not a survivor of CSA? What about the 14 year old who pretends to be 18, and has inappropriate sexual contact with people he or she has not met before at a party? All the issues of guilt and shame still apply, and these cases cannot be unheard-of in the counselling profession.The emphasis on the book is on the betrayal of the child by someone they trusted or knew well, and how to deal with the aftermath in later life. The child who is sexually assaulted or raped as a one-off by a stranger or strangers is rarely mentioned, and no advice is given as to how such an individual might be counselled. Otherwise it is good, but beware of treating it as containing all the answers to counselling and CSA. Unless I've missed that chapter - but I have looked quite hard, as I am researching the topic for my next novel.
