The trauma myth : the truth about the sexual abuse of children--and its aftermath / by Clancy, Susan A.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.What was it like when it happened? -- The truth about sexual abuse -- The politics of sexual abuse -- Why the trauma myth damages victims -- How the trauma myth silences victims."Few would argue that the experience of sexual abuse is deeply traumatic for a child. But in this book, psychologist Susan Clancy reports on years of research and contends that it is not the abuse itself that causes trauma - but rather the narrative that is later imposed on the abuse experience. Clancy demonstrates that the most common feeling victims report is not fear or panic, but confusion. Because children don't understand sexual encounters in the same ways that adults do, they normally accommodate their perpetrators - something they feel intensely ashamed about as adults. The professional assumptions about the nature of childhood trauma can harm victims by reinforcing these feelings. Survivors are thus victimized not only by their abusers but also by the industry dedicated to helping them. Path-breaking and controversial, The Trauma Myth empowers survivors to tell their own stories, and radically reshapes our understanding of abuse and its aftermath."--BOOK JACKET.

Protecting our kids? : how sex offender laws are failing us / by Horowitz, Emily.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Child abuse becomes a social problem -- Race and poverty matter -- Sex offender panic -- Sex offenders are different -- Case study: New York -- Child porn panic.Do sex offender laws protect children, or are they inherently unfair practices that, at their worst, promote vigilante justice? The latter, this book argues. By analyzing the social, political, historical, and cultural context surrounding the emergence of current sex offender policies and laws, the work shows how sex offender have come to loom as greater-than-life monsters when, in many cases, that is not true at all. Looking at its subject from a fresh viewpoint, the book shares research and new analyses of data and qualitative evidence to show how sex-offender laws are not only ineffective, but engender destructive fear and anxiety. To help readers understand the impact of these laws, the author presents interviews with sex offenders and their families as they describe the day-to-day reality of living on the sex offender registry. Citing research and statistics, the book challenges the idea that sex offenders must be continually monitered and publicly identified because they are incurably predatory. Most important, the study shows that undue sex offender panic is preventing policymakers from addressing the true threats to children - poverty and growing inequality. -- from dust jacket.
