The psycho-social needs of victims of rape and sexual assault are increasingly recognised and there is a need for a critical synthesis of knowledge and practice to support the development of training and best practice in the mental health and sexual health professions.

The Trauma of Sexual Assault provides an understanding of the theoretical underpinning of the wide range of clinical problems that can follow sexual assault. Focusing on adult victims of sexual assault, this book brings together research findings, theoretical perspectives and implications for treatment, longer term management, and future policy.
* The first text to consider the psychological impact of sexual assault on women and men
* Incorporates a comprehensive flow-through model of psychological and social management from the initial presentation of the assaulted person onwards
* A much needed reference, accessible to a wide range of professionals
