About this book

This book describes different kinds of psychological, physical and sexual maltreatment and explains their possible consequences, especially as regards quality of life, psychopathology and sexual life. The focus is specifically on the victims of abuse, who are among the more frail and vulnerable members of society. The book examines the impacts of maltreatment of both children and social minorities, such as homosexuals and gender dysphoric individuals or those affected by disabilities and describes skills that are of value in supporting victims of maltreatment and preventing discrimination. The work will be useful to sexual medicine specialists, medical doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists, as well as graduate students in these disciplines. By fostering a better understanding of discrimination triggers and effects, it will help clinicians to provide improved support through the tailoring of therapies to the needs of maltreated individuals.

“This book explains in detail the nature of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse, describing for each the etiology, onset/course, epidemiology, and treatment, for both offender and victim. … The book is intended for students, residents, and practitioners needing more evidence-based information on these topics. … this book is full of rich information. I would recommend it to anyone in the field of mental health regardless of training!” (Sundeep S. Randhawa, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2015)
