This volume of 18 articles provides information about a diversity of issues - recognition, legal codes, evaluation, psychodynamics, treatment, prognosis and outcome. Included are reports on an extensive survey of professional recognition in England and an examination of European criminal law relating to child sexual abuse, theoretical models of psychosexual development within the family and incest as an expression of a dysfunctional family system. Attention is given to special problems of treatment along with reports on three on-going treatment programmes. Two useful features of the book are a comprehensive bibliography and a critique of available audio-visual materials.


Of interest to paediatricians, psychiatrists, doctors, social workers, probation officers, family and community counsellors.
