Format: Mixed media product

Publication abandoned, other editions may be available


Child sexual abuse victims are too often treated as objects to be examined and discussed rather than as vulnerable patients who have experienced serious trauma and have very specific, immediate medical needs. The goal of Medical Response to Child Sexual Abuse is to restore these children to their appropriate patient status so that they receive the compassionate medical care and protection that is their right. This one volume medical reference book contains important information on the medical approach to child sexual abuse including examination procedure and techniques, interpretation of findings, and examiner qualifications. It also discusses legal issues, the role of multidisciplinary team members, and prevention. The DVD companion comprises two critical features: a how-to mock demonstration of a child sexual abuse examination and a video atlas of sexual assault findings. Together, the book and supplementary DVD contain the most thorough and up-to-date resources available on the medical evaluation and care of child sexual abuse victims
