Handbook on sensitive practice for health care practitioners: lessons from adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse

2009 by the National Clearinghouse on Family Violence, Public Health Agency of Canada.

This handbook presents information that will help health care practitioners practise in a manner that is sensitive to the needs of adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and other types of interpersonal violence. It is intended for health care practitioners and students of all health disciplines who have no specialized training in mental health,
psychiatry, or psychotherapy and have limited experience working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. This second edition includes experiences and ideas of both women and men survivors as well as of practitioners from more than ten health disciplines.
