Written by a group of nationally-recognized physicians, Evaluation of the Sexually Abused Child, 2E is a comprehensive and authoritative resource that provides a step-by-step discussion of how to interview and clinically evaluate suspected child sexual abuse cases. The contributors draw on their extensive experience to provide sensitive and practical guidance on psychological aspects of abuse, conducting the medical interview and physical exam to make a diagnosis, sexually transmitted disease, and the role of the physician in court. This new edition includes updated information on lab techniques, revised protocols for intervention programs, and a host of new data from several recently released longitudinal studies that followed abused children into adolescence and adulthood. A key feature of the first edition, a photographic atlas documenting and classifying ambiguous signs of abuse, has been expanded by more than 40% to incorporate new photos on the sexual abuse of adolescents, patterns of healing trauma, and additional examples of normal variations and medical conditions.
