Overview

In recent years society has witnessed more and more reports of violence and abuse related to sexual aggression. The increase of sexually aggressive behavior among adolescent offenders is of particular concern and consideration.

Sexual Aggression explores this phenomenon — from the recognition of the development of sexual behavior problems in childhood to the assessment and treatment of both male and female adolescent and adult sex offenders. The book is divided into two sections. The first section presents an overview of the problem of sexual aggression and the psychological consequences of such acts, covering important topics such as childhood sexual development and forms of non-normative behavior within the family. The issue of sexual harassment of children is examined as well as the short-term and long-term consequences of sexual abuse and victimization. Cultural and ethnic influences are explored as they relate to the response to abuse by the child and family.

The second section assesses and evaluates sexually aggressive behavior and offers treatment options. Both male and female offenders are described, as are the determinants of adolescent sexual aggression. The final chapters address the complex evaluation of child sex offenders and the therapeutic and pharmacological strategies for treatment.

A thorough yet accessible approach to the phenomenology and assessment of sexually aggressive behavior, Sexual Aggression is especially relevant to psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers who treat sexually aggressive adolescents and adults — as well as the victims of sexual aggression.

Editorial Reviews

New England Journal of Medicine
There are many strengths to Sexual Aggression and no apparent shortcomings. The chapters include case scenarios that help to highlight and illustrate important clinical points. The book avoids sweeping overstatements and simplistic solutions. For instance, though the root of sexual aggression is often victimization of the perpetrator as a child, this fact is not used as a defense or as an excuse for the gravity of the offense. Although the book has many authors, it is homogeneous; the chapters conform to a fairly uniform style, and there is a recurrence of themes and ideas that reinforces the main points without becoming repetitive. This comprehensive review will be a useful resource for both newcomers to the field and experienced practitioners dealing with sexual aggression.
Booknews
Eleven contributions present current theoretical and clinical thinking on the subject by psychiatrists. The first section contains discussion of the problem of sexual aggression and its psychological consequences, with articles on the development of problems in childhood, aggression within the family, victimization of children, and transcultural aspects. Contributions in the second section discuss assessment, evaluation, and treatment options of adult and adolescent offenders. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
