Working with the trauma of rape and sexual violence: a guide for professionals

Daniels, Sue J., author

Inadequate responses to victims of rape or sexual violence can lead to further psychological trauma which damages their chances of recovery. Addressing key issues for people working with victims of sexual violence, this resource offers the skills, knowledge and insight to help survivors as they move forward with their lives. The trauma caused by rape and sexual assault can often be further compounded by unthinking or insensitive comments from people who may judge, disbelieve or disparage the victim.This authoritative resource draws together advice for all people in the helping professions on how to work with victims of rape and sexual violence. The wide-ranging topics cover the effects of rape, male rape, childhood sexual abuse, sex trafficking and prostitution, and sexually transmitted infections, giving best practice advice on how to offer effective and compassionate support to help survivors
