Sibling Abuse
Hidden Physical, Emotional, and Sexual Trauma

Second Edition

Other Titles in:
Child Sexual Abuse

August 1997 | 232 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Often excused by parents as `kids will be kids' behaviour, sibling abuse remains largely unrecognized. Symptoms of such abuse and its devastating effects on victims go undetected, victims do not receive appropriate therapeutic intervention, and transgressors do not come to the attention of the courts.

The author of this book brings this neglected area `out of the shadows' with personal accounts of adult survivors, insights into why sibling abuse occurs, suggestions for prevention and implications for treatment.
