Sexual Abuse in Nine North American Cultures: Treatment and Prevention

SAGE Publications, 17 apr. 1995 - 328 pagini
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.
