The experience of childhood sexual abuse is a trauma that continues to have an impact on survivors throughout their lives. The Second Edition of this accessible, practical guide - fully updated and with a new chapter on the false memory debate - will enable counsellors to become adept at addressing the unique and complex needs of survivors.
Claire Burke Draucker identifies the significant healing processes - such as disclosing the abuse, reinterpreting it from an adult perspective, addressing issues related to the context of the abuse and making desired life changes - which are vital to achieve recovery. Each of these processes is discussed in conjunction with the most effective counselling interventions to facilitate resolution, and illustrated through the use of carefully-chosen case examples.
