Coping with Survivors and Surviving

by Julie Skinner
£29.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2000)

Coping with Survivors and Surviving by Julie Skinner What happens to the survivors of child sexual abuse in its aftermath? How do parents and teachers engage with children who have suffered abuse? Based on a qualitative study exploring the effects of child sexual abuse on children, their mothers and their teachers, Coping with Survivors and Surviving is the first book to consider how the reactions of these different groups relate to, and are affected by each other. In her interviews with these groups, Julie Skinner focuses on:
 
* the family life of the survivors and the process of disclosure,
* how all those involved with the child coped at the time of the disclosure and during its aftermath,
* the issues and tensions which were resolved and those which have remained unresolved.
 
The author analyses these different and often conflicting perspectives, placing them in the context of the literature on coping with trauma, and psychoanalytic and sociological theories on the mother-child relationship. She goes on to develop a model for exploring the ways in which interaction may affect perceptions and outcomes, suggesting that mothers and teachers may be seen as secondary victims of child sexual abuse.
 
Emphasising the necessity of support for all those involved in such cases, Julie Skinner draws out the implications for welfare services and makes recommendations for how they can be improved.
