Coperta unu
SAGE, 17 apr. 1995 - 303 pagini
Due to cultural and linguistic misunderstandings, racism, and even homophobia, sexual abuse is frequently mishandled by professionals working with minority populations. Although research and clinical theory on "generic" intervention have advanced, the impact of culture on issues of sexual abuse is just beginning to form part of the discussion. Sexual Abuse in Nine North American Cultures assesses cultural strengths and challenges with nine solution-focused chapters on specific cultures. It suggests ways in which cultural norms can be used to protect children and promote recovery from sexual abuse, and breaks new ground in offering practical guidelines that professionals can use to become more helpful to children, families, and adult survivors from all groups. Among the groups explored are Cambodians, African Americans, Seventh Day Adventists, gay men and lesbian women, Asians, Pacific Islanders and Filipino Americans, Puerto Ricans, Jews, and Anglo Americans.
