Child Abuse Trauma: Theory and Treatment of the Lasting Effects
In this classic text, Briere examines the interrelationship between the various types of abuse and neglect. In response to this fragmentation, this volume considers the unique and overlapping long-term effects of all major forms of child abuse and neglect. He focuses on various types of child abuse and neglect (sexual/physical abuse, addicted parents) - and outlines its complex impact on later psychosocial functioning. He reframes traditional notions of psychopathology and describes treatment approaches to abuse-related PTSD, self-destructive behaviour, impaired self-reference and borderline personality disorder.
