9780123877598: Handbook of Child and Adolescent Sexuality: Developmental and Forensic Psychology

Adolescent and child sexuality is studied by developmental psychologists from a research perspective and is of interest to forensic psychologists dealing with abuse and custody issues as well as rape cases. In many cases, it is of interest whether the child in question was sexually active to understand the extent to which an underage minor might have voluntarily participated in sexual activity as opposed to having been coerced. Previously, researchers interested in the applications of their research needed to look to separate books, and forensic specialists needed to look to development books to find the information they may have needed. This handbook provides both audiences with the related information they need.



  • Encompasses normative behavior and clinical disorders in one source
  • Applies the information on development and behavior to forensic issues
  • Provides treatment information on sexual disorders in children
  • Provides information on children and adolescents in one volume

"This book covers child and adolescent sexuality from a developmental perspective, while considering normal development and paraphilias and exploring child abuse victims and adolescent offenders...The book is fairly easy to read and covers the topic well, addressing ethical issues, research strategies, developmental information, treatment recommendations, and public policy. It will be useful to a wide range of medical, mental health, and legal professionals." Rating: 4 Stars--Doody.com, January 24, 2014 "Editors Bromberg and O'Donohue present this reference on the sensitive topic of sexuality in non-adult populations. The book is divided into five general headings of professional ethics, research strategies, sexuality across development, sexual victimization, and sexual behavior problems, with the sections on development and victimization being largest...The book is intended for a broad audience, from researchers and mental health professionals to legal experts."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
