"This carefully documented, well written text sets the standard for psychological assessment of child sexual abuse. It goes beyond the focus on just the child’s statement to argue for an integrated approach to evaluation that looks at the child, the child’s context, and the relationships in a child’s life. An excellent book, Dr. Friedrich’s work is a must read for anyone doing child sexual abuse evaluation.
If you do any forensic child sexual abuse evaluation, you need to read this book. In a carefully documented, well written text it sets the standard for abuse assessment. Not only does it advocate an integrated approach to evaluation that includes information on the child, the child's context and the child's relationships, but it goes on to offer clear and helpful directions for gathering this information. A generous sprinkling of relevant case histories links theory to practice. This excellent book is a much needed contribution to the arena of psychological assessment in child sexual abuse."
