Male Sexual Abuse
A Trilogy of Intervention Strategies


June 1994 | 360 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
"I was intrigued by this book from the very beginning because of the fact that it identified multiple perspectives on working with sexually abused males. The field of treatment of male sexual abuse victims has evolved to the point where multiple perspectives can be considered and this is certainly a sign of growth. . . . Although the book was written by three authors, John C. Gonsiorek's role in keeping the focus of the book unified is evident in that I found little duplication among the sections as well as a unifying approach that clearly was client-driven. This book is a significant contribution to the treatment of adolescent males with sexual abuse and/or offending history in their presentation." --William N. Friedrich in Child Abuse & Neglect "Overall this book is a welcome addition to the small but increasing number of books dealing with male victimization." --Violence and Victims "This is an interesting read with clear classifications of the range of sexual abuse effects and types of sexual aggression in male adolescents." --Sharon Collins in Clinical Psychology Forum "Male Sexual Abuse is a thought-provoking book that will benefit the study and understanding of sexual abuse." --Coalition Commentary (Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault) Male Sexual Abuse examines three different clinical intervention approaches for working with adolescent and young adult males who are victims or perpetrators of sexual abuse. Drawing upon adaptations from Heinz Kohut's self-psychology, John C. Gonsiorek describes assessment, treatment planning, and individual psychotherapy including cognitive-behavioral techniques. Walter H. Bera continues with a model of family systems therapy in working with adolescent male perpetrators and synthesizes a victim-sensitive therapy for offenders. Lastly, the young male street prostitute, often viewed as untreatable in therapy, is addressed by Donald LeTourneau who presents a model for working with this tragically ignored population. The divergent perspectives presented in Male Sexual Abuse provide the mental health and human service professional with clinically sophisticated points of view as well as stimulus for further discussion of ways to improve clinical intervention with adolescent male sexual perpetrators and victims.
