It's someone taking a part of you: A study of young women and sexual exploitation
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Jan 1, 2003 - Social Science - 89 pages
It's Someone Taking a Part of You explores the choices and opportunities available to young women who are at risk of, or experiencing, sexual exploitation. Based on 55 case studies, it presents young women's accounts of their experience of violence and sexual exploitation, providing both quantitative and qualitative data about the problems they face. It identifies three different categories of risk, and recommends interventions that could take place at each stage to support the young women concerned. It's Someone Taking a Part of You will be of interest to all those working with young people, particularly field and residential social workers, and other professionals working in and with schools, sexual health services, drug prevention and treatment service, and the police.
