Treating the Aftermath of Sexual Abuse
This is a handbook for working with children in care who have been sexually abused. The authors review the impact of sexual abuse on a child’s physical and emotional development and describe the effect of abuse on basic life experiences. What distinguishes the authors’ approach is the importance they place on the child’s “story.” This handbook will guide caregivers and other professionals as they learn to understand the child’s story in the signs and signals that she gives them through her behavior. As caregivers become careful, thoughtful listeners, they will be able to use day-to-day events in helping the child tell her story, understand how abuse has shaped her life, and find the path to healing.
