Summary

Summary

This sourcebook, the first of two volumes, helps professionals identify and assess male victims effectively. It details current research and treatment information, from cultural factors that reinforce destructive notions about sexual abuse and prevent accurate identification and assessment of victims, through the process of treatment and healing.

Choice Review

This two-volume collection adds to the increasingly voluminous literature on taboo forms of sex. Contributors are mental health workers and/or students. The first volume covers basic overviews and the second describes, in some detail, psychotherapy techniques to be used by mental health workers. The collection would probably be most relevant to universities with graduate programs in clinical psychology, clinical social work, or medical schools with psychiatric residency programs. Undergraduate programs in human sexuality would also find it useful, as would fundamentalist religious institutions looking for books reinforcing sex taboos. (Several contributors give a liberal, "politically correct" slant to their chapters, but the overall pathology-oriented tenor of the volumes would probably be most appealing to sexual conservatives.)
