Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: An increasing number of adult survivors are seeking healthcare that is specific to their childhood sexual abuse. Many practitioners feel inadequately trained to cope with such a complex issue and the availability of affordable specialists does not match the need. Specific training in such work is still not available and a general appreciation is lacking that healthcare for the adult mental health issues of survivors needs to be abuse specific. After Abuse sets out clearly the complex implications of childhood sexual abuse for a person's adult mental health. It presents a model of abuse-specific help for health practitioners from different training persuasions. The book's jargon-free language and numerous case-study examples cut across professional demarcations. After Abuse is essential reading for primary healthcare practitioners in community health, rural health, mental health, solo private practice, and for those practitioners who have been approached by adult survivors for help with health issues related to their childhood sexual abuse.
