Treating Secondary Victims

Treating Secondary Victims
Intervention with the Nonoffending Mother in the Incest Family

September 2000 | 264 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

This book builds upon a foundation of research literature on incest victims and their families as well as the author's own clinical experience to provide a conceptual framework for intervention and treatment of the non-offending mother. Amply illustrated with case examples, the author, Virginia C. Strand, outlines a treatment model and gives suggestions for specific treatment strategies. Particular emphasis is paid to the context of the mother's situation, and how such factors as social class, ethnicity, age, and education must be taken into consideration when treating these clients. In addition, Strand provides helpful guidance to the therapist whose client must deal with the multiplicity of systems that are involved with intervention, investigation, and prosecution of child abuse cases. This book is a much needed guide for therapists, case workers, and other service providers who work with both the children who are incest victims, as well as their families.
