About this product
- DescriptionThe Long Shadow of Sexual Abuse: Developmental Effects across the Life Cycle has one simple purpose-to describe the profound interferences with rmal developmental processes that occur in every subsequent developmental phase throughout life as the result of chronic child sexual abuse. Through the presentation of detailed case histories of individuals ranging in age from five to the early sixties, Colarusso convincingly demonstrates that the effects are life long. Sections on rmal development for childhood, adolescence, young, and middle adulthood are followed by case histories, arranged chrologically according to the age of the victims at the time they were evaluated. Then the effects of the sexual abuse are traced through subsequent developmental phases to the chrological present. Colarusso illuminates how the passage of time actually increases the pathological effects of chronic child sexual abuse due to interferences with the developmental tasks of adolescence and adulthood.
