Overview

This practical guide gives foster parents and other professionals who work with children who have been sexually abused, information, training tips, and copious references for those who want to go beyond the basics. The developmental needs and normal behavior of different age groups are discussed throughout. Signs and symptoms of sexual abuse with particular attention to the child’s age are given. Chapters include information on sex and sexuality, how to distinguish normal from abnormal sexual behavior, treatment methods, recent research on assessment of sexual abuse including interview methods, concerns about the sexually aggressive child, emotional cost of treating sexual abuse survivors in foster care and how to take care of ourselves better, and a look ahead to recommended research topics and improvements in training foster parents and other professionals. This book recognizes that those who work in foster care are extremely busy, so the author condensed a large amount of information into bulleted lists for easy reference.
