Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

"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 easy to understand and to read." -Harvey Armstrong, Book Review, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Canada Journal Psychiatry, Vol 51, No 4, April 2006
