Victims of Abuse. The Emotional Impact of Child and Adult Trauma. Edited by Alan Sugarman, Ph.D. Madison, CT: International Universities Press, Inc., 1994. 233 pp.

Review by:
Kato Van Leeuwen

In the opening chapter of this book, editor Alan Sugarman examines the complex topics of trauma and abuse by placing them in a historical and theoretical context. He differentiates trauma from frustration and a single trauma from cumulative traumata. His main focus is on sexual abuse and parent loss.

An article by Albert J. Solnit cautions against the possible deleterious results of legal intervention, obligatory reporting, and repeated foster home placements. Legislative attempts to deal with child abuse without the availability of resources to provide adequate care can have damaging effects.
