Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

by Christiane Sanderson
£25.00   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2006)

Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse by Christiane Sanderson The completely revised and expanded third edition of this well-established text provides comprehensive coverage of the theory and practice of counselling survivors of child sexual abuse (CSA). Additional new material examines how trauma models explain and describe the impact of CSA, and considers CSA in relation to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma reactions. Stand-alone chapters provide in-depth coverage of:

  • CSA's impact on survivors' sense of self and their relationships with others
  • self-harming behaviour, including self-injury, substance abuse and eating disorders
  • how memory is constructed and reconstructed, including the controversial issues surrounding recovered memories
  • useful approaches to coping with fear and loss in relation to trauma
  • the impact of CSA and trauma on sexuality
  • working with shame and dissociation
This book provides practical strategies for those new to counselling in this field, valuable insights for experienced counsellors, and information for those looking to understand the issues surrounding CSA and its impact on children and survivors.
"Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse addresses the myths and mysteries while propelling a lifeline to both the health professional and the adult survivor. This is probably the most complete book on sexual abuse in publication."
