Placing the experiences of men at the heart of this book, Sarah Van Gogh outlines an integrative approach to effective therapeutic treatment of male child sexual abuse
In a culture where to be male is often to be expected to embody strength, power and being in control, male victims of sexual abuse can be particularly challenging to help. This book outlines seven composite detailed case studies representing men from a wide range of backgrounds and demographics. It lays out how the author's pioneering model of an integrative approach which includes psychodynamic, humanistic and relational, cognitive/behavioural, body-based and arts-based approaches can offer an effective model for working with this client group.
This key text will prove a valuable resource for all those working with male survivors of sexual abuse.
