Unfair Advantage: Sexual Abuse by Psychotherapists, Priests, and Police is about trusted professionals in mental health, religious, and law enforcement fields who exploit and abuse children and young adults, and the people and institutions who enable these perpetrators by covering up their crimes.

* Students of psychology and social work;
* Police: newly-sworn officers, administrators, and internal affairs investigators;

To expose sexual predators' modus operandi and tactics for avoiding apprehension for their crimes for as long as decades.

This book is comprised of several parts:

* Section Two describes the impact and effects on the victims, the victims' survival strategies, and the perpetrators' defenses.
* Section Three describes behavioral indicators of the possibility that a child is being sexually abused, statutes of limitations and other legal hurdles, and websites for specific resources for assistance with intervention.
