BOOK EXCERPT:

Based on a unique research study, this volume examines the later life development of Holocaust survivors from Israel and the US. Through systematic interviews, the authors – noted researchers and clinicians – collected data about the lives of these survivors and how they compared to peers who did not share this experience. The orientation of the book synthesizes several conceptual approaches – gerontological and life span development, stress research, and traumatology, and also reflects the varied disciplines of the authors, spanning psychology, social work, and sociology. The result is a multi-faceted view of their subject with an understanding of the individual, society, and the interaction of the two, tempered by the authors’ own Holocaust experiences. Chapters cover a range of areas including stress and coping of these survivors, reviews of their heath and mental health, an examination of their social integration, as well as a review of the multiple predictors of psychological well-being and adaptation to aging. This book will be of interest to psychologists, social workers, sociologists, psychiatrists, and all those who study both trauma and aging.

BOOK EXCERPT:

How can we treat survivors of sexual abuse more effectively? Sexual abuse against females is a serious problem in society and there is a need for a greater understanding of the presentation and treatment of adult survivors of sexual abuse. In Female Survivors of Sexual Abuse, Christine Baker combines her clinical experience with an innovative approach to the treatment of this problem. Female Survivors of Sexual Abuse addresses the experience of 180 female adults who were sexually abused in childhood, and provides detailed analyses and treatment approaches. The subject matter is presented in an accessible and compassionate way, imparting personal opinion and experience. It covers: * female survivors: their stories, and the evidence * integration, the alliance and the therapist * the survivor's journey to recovery * the families, disclosure and the role of the mother. This book enables the reader to "enter" the experience of the survivors and follow their progress to recovery, while highlighting the ever-changing state of knowledge in this difficult area. It will be invaluable to practitioners and students of clinical psychology, counselling, and psychiatry.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Working with Adult Incest Survivors offers a successful, multidimensional approach to treatment - painstakingly developed and fine-tuned by the authors over a period of 15 years. This method, Comprehensive Family Therapy, combines pertinent elements of cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, and family treatment approaches and encompasses six clearly defined stages of treatment for individual survivors with an additional stage for those who are in committed relationships. Step by step, the volume takes the therapist from the initial stage of determining whether or not a particular patient is indeed an incest survivor, through a multitude of therapeutic techniques to normalize and alleviate symptomatology, and onward to prepare the survivor and partner for sessions with the family of origin. The next stage encompasses family sessions in which the survivor confronts the perpetrator, surviving parents, and siblings with the details of the abuse - and very importantly, beyond, to follow-up family sessions and contacts via letter with goals of reparation and resolution. The final stage includes couples and sex therapy in which the survivor and partner learn ways to overcome longstanding intimacy and sexual problems.
