Sexual abuse of children wrecks lives, families and communities. In this landmark book, well-known registered clinical psychologist Robyn Salisbury seeks the wisdom of those who have devoted many years, each in their own domain, to working with child sexual abuse. Driven by Salisbury's wish to challenge abused children's invisibility and abusive adolescent's and adult's power, this book makes a major and unique contribution to understanding how we can best tackle the tragedy of child sexual abuse as a nation, and how urgent it is that we do. From its foreword by Children's Commissioner Judge Andrew Becroft to its chapters by survivors, clinical psychologists working with both victims and offenders, the Chief Censor, experts on child trafficking and psychotherapists working in damaged communities, the expertise contained in its pages offers a blueprint for best practice for both professionals and the community, and cannot be ignored.
