Sexual Abuse in Nine North American Cultures Treatment and Prevention

Synopsis

Sexual Abuse in Nine North American Cultures Treatment and Prevention by Lisa A. Fontes

The impact of culture on sexual abuse issues is only beginning to be understood. In minority populations, sexual abuse can be overlooked - or survivors can be inappropriately treated - because of cultural or linguistic misunderstandings, racism or homophobia. This volume contains culture-specific chapters that consider ways in which cultural norms can be used to protect children and promote healing from sexual abuse.
