When Teachers, Clergy, and Caretakers Sexually Abuse Children and Adolescents addresses the current and historical issues that revolve around children and adolescents who are sexually abused. This book provides updated and timely case examples involving teachers, clergy and others that represent the fact that sexual abuse continues as an important topic that needs ongoing education and prevention. As noted in this book there are present day examples of allegations of sexual abuse that continue to represent human error, denial, and misjudgment regarding the best interest of children and adolescents. The theories behind the ¿why¿ of child sexual abuse, and also the vast diversity of the sexual abuser population, are addressed. The most current and updated diagnosing, assessing, and interviewing techniques are presented for the reader to address within the context of what the present literature and research cites as most appropriate, standard, and gold standard professional behaviors and assessment tools. The area of technology, online sexting, and other related issues is also reviewed. The treatment effectiveness and ineffectiveness regarding what we know to date is presented. Another most important issue is the burnout rate for those working in the field of sexual abuse and sex crimes in general and this too is addressed along with prevention notes by the authors.
