With checklists and a central case study, master social worker Fowler gives practitioners significant tools they can use to interpret and apply information they collect in the investigation and remedy processes. Fowler describes the impact of sexual abuse on children and the means by which abusers are identified, then describes the abusing adult in terms of initial assessment, family structure, chronology, experience in childhood and adult life, the perception of self, adult relationships, perceptions about children, criminal offenses beside sexual offenses, self-esteem, dominant and submissive behaviors, anger and aggression, violent behavior, and the adult's perception of child sexual abuse. He also describes the typical behavior of the non-abusing adults involved, including assessment of their ability to protect the child from future abuse. He includes information on terms and tools used in assessing adults who sexually abuse children and lists of future reading as well as references.
