Sexual Abuse of Children: A Resource Guide and Annotated Bibliography
Although some information on the physical abuse of children has been available for some time, the topic of sexual abuse has been neglected until very recently.
This selective guide is the first North American resource to gather together diverse information on sexual abuse, including findings about incest, non-family abuse, the offender, legal aspects of sexual offences, and the treatment of the abused. Also included are a recommended basic library on the subject and a list of available films.
Designed for educators and students alike in faculties of education, medicine, nursing, and social work, it will also be most useful for in-service training courses in health and welfare institutions and community college courses for para-professionals. Sexual Abuse of Children was selected as an Outstanding Academic Book for 1982—83 by Choice, the journal of the Association of College of Research Libraries, American Library Association.
