Creative Responses to Child Sexual Abuse : Challenges and Dilemmas, Paperback / softback Book

Creative Responses to Child Sexual Abuse : Challenges and Dilemmas Paperback / softback

Edited by Sue Richardson, Heather Bacon


Despite heightened media attention and the increase in professional knowledge about child abuse, many children are still being failed by the system.

Using attachment theory as a foundation, this book addresses in depth the acute practice dilemmas concerning children who, despite the climate of increased awareness, multi-disciplinary cooperation and legislative and procedural change, cannot easily be protected. The contributors give guidelines for working with the children, in particular those who, unable to disclose their experience themselves, are the most difficult to support.

Illustrated throughout with case material and informed by the experiences of survivors themselves, the book presents a framework for well managed and resourced, flexible and integrated intervention with children, their families, and the community that will enable professionals and families to work together to break the `cycle of abuse'.
