Sexual Assault: Victimization Across the Life Span is the essential desk reference for anyone treating or investigating sexual assault. Emergency room personnel, physicians, EMTs, social service agencies, judges, and law enforcement personnel will find critical information on physical examinations, proper documentation, forensic evidence (including DNA analysis), and legal issues. The special sections devoted to the unique problems of sexual victimization of each age group are also invaluable. Edited by a pediatrician, an emergency room physician, a sexual assault nurse examiner, and a gynecologist, this hard-bound guide offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available. The Color Atlas contains case studies from experts in the field, including photos of STIs, injuries in progressive stages of healing, and similar injuries in different age groups. Special sections include victims with disabilities, assault during incarceration, and cases involving DNA evidence collection, analysis, and prosecution. The Sexual Assault Supplementary CD-ROM contains 130 full-color images with detailed case studies, all cultivated from the Sexual Assault Color Atlas , reflecting the findings that are most characteristic of the various age groups. The CD is a perfect complement to the two-volume set, whether for training presentations or self-study.
