"Crimes of Violence" is a study of rape and child sexual assault. Divided into four parts, it combines both theoretical and practical material, and it aims to provide professionals working in the area with a thorough grasp of current methods and issues in rape and child sexual assault. Part one begins by documenting the historical attitudes underpinning societal understanding of rape and child sexual assault up to and including the impact of feminism from the 1970s. This focus on attitudes continues by analyzing the historical construction of mythology that has informed the attitudes of professional areas such as policing, the medical arena and the criminal justice system. Part two addresses two important developments arising from feminist calls for change - education for workers and the need for a co-ordinated government response. This forms the backdrop for the discussions outlining the very real changes to intervention with adult incest survivors, and children and adults who have been raped. Part three outlines different approaches to groupwork practice - the drop-in-group, children's group and the North Shore Women's group. These groups exemplify the possibilities for groupwork to complement, replace or remain independent from individual counselling - a choice which allows for a range of possible combinations to suit individual needs better. Part four presents an account of the issues, workers and agencies who have begun to recognize the importance of addressing the specific needs of traditionally marginalized groups. "Crimes of violence" is an invaluable resource for social and welfare workers, students, and the legal and medical professions. "Jan Breckenridge lectures in the School of Social Work at the University of New South Wales. Moira Carmody combines teaching in the Welfare Section of Blacktown TAFE with running a private practice in the area of social policy and sexual assault.". This book is intended for useful resource book for counsellors and practitioners.
