Based on Blume’s widely adopted "Incest Survivor’s Aftereffects Checklist," now a standard diagnostic tool for clinicians and counselors, it offers a clear path towards a rich and empowered life, and toward breaking the cycle of incest. 1990 (0 471-61843-8) 326 pp. Multiple Personality Disorder Diagnosis, Clinical Features, and Treatment Colin A.

Acquaintance Rape the Hidden Crime It is not without a certain irony that the title of this book refers to acquaintance rape as a "hidden crime." According to recent estimates of the approximately 1 in 4 women who are rape victims by their middle twenties, over three quarters will have been sexually assaulted by someone they know. Yet, forced sex between people who know one another is still often not viewed as a crime—or at least not a serious one—by our judicial system, or society at large. And while the last decade has seen a heightened scholarly interest, empirical findings on this tragic phenomenon are still not readily available to practitioners. Acquaintance Rape: The Hidden Crime represents the first attempt to bridge that gap and provide professionals with the latest thinking in the field. Comprising contributions by a number of the leading authorities in the field, Acquaintance Rape: The Hidden Crime offers a balanced presentation of both the latest research and practical suggestions for educators and clinicians. Throughout, all contributions reflect a research-based, service-oriented approach. Sections cover societal attitudes toward acquaintance rape, contributing factors, a typology of acquaintance rape, victim and assailant profiles, consequences, professional and societal responses, and avoidance and prevention, strategies and issues. The first and only book on acquaintance rape geared specifically to the practical concerns of professionals, Acquaintance Rape: The Hidden Crime is an essential source of guidance for psychologists, psychiatrists, medical practitioners, social workers, and crisis center personnel, as well as school counselors, teachers, law enforcement personnel and public policy makers.
