The Rape of Childhood: Development, Clinical, and Sociocultural Aspects of Childhood Sexual Abuse details the dark realm of childhood sexual abuse. While lived experience, memory, subjectivity, and affect cannot be classified into neat categories, this collection is divided into four core sections-epidemiology, emotional sequelae, psychoanalytic insight, and ameliorative strategies-to provide a thorough description of childhood abuse. The contributors examine the variables that increase a child's vulnerability to maltreatment, including age, gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic factors, and outline the various emotional and behavioral consequences of childhood sexual abuse. This collection is essential reading for therapists working to help formerly abused children to learn how to love, be loved, and care about themselves.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The authors of these expertly written chapters cover a considerable amount of material regarding the effects of sexual abuse on children at different stages of development. They also address the long-lasting impact of such abuse as it manifests during adulthood. Among other highlights are descriptions of psychoanalytic treatment of sexually abused preschoolers, and forensic assessments of emotional damage to teenage boys seduced by female teachers. An astute, wide-ranging introduction and a wonderfully inclusive summary neatly bookend the many scholarly contributions. A terrific compilation!" - Jerome S. Blackman, Eastern VA Medical School -- Jerome S. Blackman
"This superbly edited volume focuses on the destruction of children through sexual exploitation - in families, schools, and neighborhoods. It also addresses the dark realm of sex trafficking. Given the disturbing nature of the topic, the book is remarkably readable and provides the clinician with extensive clinical material, offering hope to such victims who are rescued in time from their bondage." - Ira Brenner, Jefferson Medical College -- Ira Brenner, M.D., Jefferson Medical College
