The Sexual Abuse of Children: Recognition and Redress
monographposted on 2020-08-19, 00:11 authored by Yorick Smaal, Andy Kaladelfos, Mark Finnane
How can we seek justice and redress for the sexual abuse of children and better prevent the occurrence of such abuse? This work brings together the thoughts on this question advanced by leading scholars, from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, from around the world. These thinkers – some also professional practitioners – provide new perspectives on sanctioned and informal responses to abuse in religious, educational and total institutions, as well as to abuse carried out in non-institutional settings. The Sexual Abuse of Children will be a valuable resource for researchers, students and those who deal with related issues in professional contexts.
