Atlas of Sexual Violence

The ideal clinical companion for evaluating and documenting sexual violence, Atlas of Sexual Violence reflects the field's most up-to-date research and clinical practice. It reviews current practices for providing patient care to adolescent and adult victims of sexual violence, and uses diverse photographs to show variances related to race and age. Coverage of wound identification and terminology helps in accurate interpretation, documentation, and courtroom testimony. From the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) and Tara Henry, a nationally known forensic nursing expert, this book is a durable, portable guide suitable for anyone who deals with cases of suspected sexual assault, including health care providers, social workers, attorneys, and law enforcement personnel.
