Description

Patients as Victims Sexual Abuse in Psychotherapy and Counselling Derek Jehu, University of Leicester, UK with specialist contributions from John Davis, Tanya Garrett, Linda Jorgenson and Gary Schoener There is growing concern at the number of complaints about sexual abuse of patients while undergoing therapy. This book discusses the ethical proscription of sex between therapists and patients, and the legal and professional regulation of abuse in both North America and Britain--including many very recent and important legislative developments. The author looks at characteristics which appear to place therapists at risk of abusing, together with some pre-conditions necessary for the occurrence of abuse. He also discusses certain characteristics which render patients vulnerable to abuse, the consequences of abuse for them, and the treatment of the problems they present. Practitioners and trainees in the professions of clinical psychology, psychiatry, nursing, counselling and social work will find this volume essential reading, particularly as it offers detailed guidance on treatment of abusive therapists and victimized patients. This book appears in The Wiley Series in Psychotherapy and Counselling Series Editors: Franz Epting, University of Florida, USA, Bonnie Strickland, University of Massachusetts, USA and John Allen, University of Brighton, UK
