Abstract

In this Third Edition of Counseling Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Claire Burke Draucker and Donna S. Martsolf identify the significant healing processes which are essential to achieve recovery. These include disclosing the abuse; reinterpreting it from an adult perspective; addressing issues related to the context of the abuse; and making desired life changes. Each of these processes is discussed in conjunction with the most effective counseling interventions to facilitate resolution. Carefully chosen case examples demonstrate the appropriate use interventions in practice. The Third Edition includes a wealth of new material covering memory retrieval, outcome research, multicultural counseling, emerging therapeutic approaches, and neuroscience and counseling. Dynamics and difficulties in the therapeutic relationship are also discussed in great depth.
