Offering a new and unique perspective, Sexual Abuse in America is important reading for anyone interested in understanding and preventing sexual abuse. With more than 47 years of sexual abuse treatment and prevention experience, the authors profile sexual abuse in American society, discuss abusive sexuality as a public health epidemic, and outline how Americans can prevent sexual abuse from recurring.

Despite the epidemic increase in incidence of sexual abuse, government at all levels has refused to recognize and treat it as a public health issue requiring prevention as well as treatment. Instead legislators are spending increasing (and increasingly scarce) tax dollars on ill-conceived legislation enacting punitive measures that may be making the sexual abuse problem worse. (1998)

Sexual Abuse in America describes:
How the various media misinform the public and contribute to the sexual abuse problem in America.
Types of sexual abusers and the effects of abuse on victims.
How the sex-for-sale industries abuse human sexuality and contribute to the sexual abuse problem in America.
Why current "feel good" legislation such as "Megan's Law" and "Chemical Castration" laws are ineffective in preventing sexual abuse, and why they may be contributing to worsening the sexual abuse problem in America.
Current sexual abuse prevention strategies and their effectiveness.
Proposed sexual abuse prevention strategies for the 21st Century.
