About this product
- DescriptionApproached with either indifference or panic in our culture, discussion of childhood sexuality remains submerged within political and moral debates that have historically impeded its understanding. In contrast, Sexual Development in Childhood brings together respected researchers and clinicians to assess the current state of kwledge about childhood sexuality. The result is a comprehensive presentation of the latest research that is rational, balanced, and thorough. The wide-ranging essays in Sexual Development in Childhood seek collectively to answer many of the most vital questions in the field of childhood development. What is childhood sexuality, and why should it be studied? How should it be measured, and what research methods are most useful? What are the current empirical results of research, and in what direction do these studies intend to go in the future?The essays offered in answer to these questions propose to help us understand both the rmal range of sexual development in children and the consequences of abusive sexual experiences objectives that should make this volume an essential resource for teachers, advocates, and social policy professionals as well as for researchers and clinicians.
