Presenting real-life case studies of child sexual abuse in the Caribbean as a basis for discussing interventions and models of practice that are relevant for a wide range of cultural and social settings, this multi-disciplinary text will be of interest to scholars, professionals and practitioners alike. Contributors to this volume demonstrate how sexual abuse is never just a problem of the individual: structures of inequality and the intersection of the factors they give rise to help to explain why some children are more at risk of abuse than others. Furthermore, the sub-systems in which lives are lived can compound risk and vulnerability or alternatively, can be sources of support and change. This book draws on these ideas to discuss practice across a range of service users: children, adolescent girls, teenage mothers, children with learning disabilities, fathers, mothers, women who abuse, juvenile sex offenders and children in residential care. p>

Here is a much-needed handbook for residential treatment administrators and clinicians considering research projects. Applied Research in Residential Treatment urges that applied, not basic, research is appropriate for residential treatment centers (RTCs). Research can be helpful for clinical work and RTC operation, but is not effective unless properly designed. This book suggests appropriate topics for research projects, gives practical suggestions on design, and contains example research reports. There are many technical books on research design, but few, if any, dealing with research projects suitable for RTCs--until now. Applied Research in Residential Treatment begins with an overview of the place of research in RTCs, followed by chapters presenting a range of research studies--both successful and not so successful--as examples. Specifically, chapters discuss: hypothetico-deductive (quantitative) versus observational-inductive (qualitative) approaches to research and evaluation the disadvantages and difficulties in using outcome measures to study the effects of treatment choice of statistical tools, sampling techniques, and interviewing strategies in research design the inutility of large statistical studies in understanding the individual child or milieu Applied Research in Residential Treatment is a helpful guide for clinicians and administrators currently planning research programs. It is also an informative source for those who wish to do research in the future and would like to know more about what strategies to follow.
