Social Work and Sexual Trauma Casebook : Phenomenological Perspectives - (Hardcover)
About this item
This volume offers a collection of ten case studies from clinical social workers who work in the field of sexual trauma, with the objective of challenging and informing social work practice with survivors and perpetrators of sexual trauma. These steps are meant to help the process of treatment by breaking down the experience of trauma to a set of steps and interventions aimed at resolving traumatic symptoms within a given time frame. Our text seeks to challenge the tendency towards reductionism inherent in the dominant social paradigm by encouraging the development of a phenomenological and interdisciplinary approach to understanding sexual trauma. In doing so, the examples of interventions presented in each case study reflect practice methods that honor the complexity of the human experience of sexual trauma, suffering, and recovery.
