This comprehensive text is one of the first to tackle the grave matter of the sexual abuse of boys, in all its complexity, within a biopsychosocial context and from different vantage points. Based on the life histories of more than one thousand sexually abused boys and adult males with histories of childhood sexual abuse, Sexual Abuse of Males examines the myriad biological, psychological, interpersonal, familial, and social variables that underlie and impact the experience of childhood sexual abuse. Guided by research and informed by practice, this pioneering text presents an extensive review of the literature, a well-grounded theoretical model of abuse dynamics and effects, a systematic model of treatment. This information is further elucidated through compelling case illustrations that highlight the effects of sexual abuse with regard to biological, psychological, and social adaptation, and development.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Sexual Abuse of Males: The SAM Model of Theory and Practice is a major addition to the literature on the abuse of males and a breakthrough in understanding the complexity of its aftermath. Dr. Spiegel notes that sexual abuse professionals are in a unique position to tell the truth and, with this book, it is clear that he is taking a leadership role in doing so. This book has much to offer.and I recommend it to therapists and male survivors alike."
-From the Foreword by Christine Courtois, Ph.D., author, "Recollections of Sexual Abuse: Treatment Principles and Guidelines
"I'm very impressed. "Sexual Abuse of Males is an important contribution to our knowledge base and the literature of healing. This thoughtful model, solidly grounded in current biological, psychological, and sociological research, should be read by every professional working with men, not just specialists in sexual child abuse, and be required reading for students of psychology, psychiatry, social workand counseling. Throughout this work, the author's humanity and caring shine through. I shall keep this book on my desk, recommend it in my professional trainings, and hope that it receives the attention it deserves."
-Mike Lew, M.Ed., author, "Victims No Longer and "Leaping upon the Mountains: Men Proclaiming Victory over Sexual Child Abuse
"Dr. Spiegel's interchangeable use of "SAM" as acronym for the "Sexual Abuse of Males model and as metaphor for the abused boy captures the breadth and nature of his accomplishment with this book. His sweeping approach to the multitemporal and multivariate biopsychosocial character of sexual abuse, its outcomes, and treatment render this book a simultaneous resourcetext, clinical guide, biography and map."
-William C. Holmes, M.D., M.C.S.E., Assistant Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
""Sexual Abuse of Males is the first comprehensive account of a troubling but important topic. Dr. Spiegel writes with clarity and scholarly sobriety on a topic which has for too long been ignored. This long overdue book will provide invaluable information for clinicians and victims alike."
-J. Douglas Bremner, MD, author," Does Stress Damage the Brain? Understanding Trauma-Related Disorders from a Mind-Body Perspective

"This book is the most thorough and complete presentation and discussion of sexual abuse of males (SAM). It is an essential reading for all practitioners because the percentage of patients who have suffered sexual abuse is much higher than most realize. This book is also useful for those who assess and treat female victims. It is a gem for those of us who assess these victims and suggest treatment. This book is e
