Child sex abuse is a minefield of complexity and confusion for all involved. A genuinely multidisciplinary problem, it requires the close co-operation of a wide range of people with different tasks, from the clinical treatment specialists through to the police and legal system. Tilman Furniss, a leading figure in the field of child sexual abuse, has written a unique, practical handbook designed for all professionals involved in the treatment and care of sexually abused children and their families. Based on fifteen years' innovative work, this book will help professionals develop knowledge and skills to deal with their particular task, and at the same time help them to understand the effects of their actions on the work of other professionals.

The author, working from the Family Institute in Cardiff, has been treating adult survivors of child sexual and physical abuse for several years, and she has clearly and frankly described her work in this book. She begins be describing the context for working with her clients; then describes the way she has welded systemic thinking and a feminist perspective into a theoretical model she uses to understand the problem and to guide her own work with the survivors. The descriptions of the therapeutic process are, at the same time, profound and simply conveyed. Her work is further clarified by the inclusion of twenty case examples. She shares her own dilemmas about working with adult survivors, and in this way the book offers the reader support for the emotional impact of this work as well as a theoretical framework and suggestions about therapeutic technique.
