It examines the impact of sexual abuse on children, enables professionals to evaluate the risk presented by adults who have sexually abused children, and provides a framework for the assessment of parents or carers and their ability to protect their children. The book includes checklists that practitioners can use to interpret the information they collect, and is illustrated with a central case study that demonstrates how the assessment profile can be used. This book is a helpful resource for anyone undertaking assessments that have involved the sexual abuse of children.
