Reviews - What do customers think about Caring for Sexually Abused Children: A Handbook for Families & Churches?
Excellent resource Oct 11, 2007
This book is an excellent resource if you need to help a child through the admission stages of sexual abuse. It helps you deal with the child and his/her family. It does not give as much help as I expected for the child who has already openly shared his/her abuse and is dealing with the feelings that come with it.
