Sexual assault remains one of the most problematic and controversial issues in law, medicine, and in society at large. Following the outcry against recent scandals, it has become even more important that medical, law enforcement, legal, social service, and other professionals possess comprehensive knowledge on all issues pertaining to rape, assault, sexual exploitation, and the exam findings of each. It is no longer enough to trust feelings or intuitions; experts in the field must present solid forensic evidence in a knowledgeable manner. Medical Response to Adult Sexual Assault: A Resource for Clinicians and Related Professionals is intended to introduce that knowledge and to familiarize readers with the forensic elements of a sexual assault examination. Covering topics ranging from date rape and drug-facilitated assault to sexual homicide, Medical Response to Adult Sexual Assault: A Resource for Clinicians and Related Professionals is part of the new Sexual Assault line from STM Learning. Written to expand on the information in the original Sexual Assault and to include multimedia resources, this new volume contains all new information by experts in the field. Armed with the vital knowledge contained within this volume, professionals working within medical, law enforcement, legal, social service, and other relevant fields would be able to confidently and knowledgably diagnose, treat, and help to prevent adult sexual assault. The Medical Response to Adult Sexual Assault: A Resource for Clinicians and Related Professionals Supplementary CD-ROM combines relevant data and practical solutions to identifying and treating the sexual abuse, assault, and exploitation of adults in an accessible format comprised of forensic images and easy-to-use PowerPoint presentations. The combination of the authoritative text and its supplementary disc makes this volume essential for any professional dedicated to preventing and caring for the victims of sexual abuse.This title includes a CD-ROM. --Doody Review 4 Stars, Anna Jarrett, PhD, CNS, ACNP, BC (Washington Regional Medical Center)
In Medical Response to Adult Sexual Assault, Dr. Ledray leads the way for medical and allied health professionals to improve their medical care giving to this population. According to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, in 2007 there were 243,300 victims of adult sexual assault in the United States. This population has specific unmet needs, some of which can be met with the emergence into practice of the content knowledge from Dr. Ledray's book. This text is comprehensive in scope, covering the history of specialization care, categorizations of victims of adult sexual assault with common threads for identification and treatment, and includes a chapter on evidence collection, preservation, and identification that will strongly support the legal machinations that must occur. This text should become a necessary and well-worn resource to medical professionals working with adult sexual assault victims. --Karyn E. Holt, CNM, PhD Associate Clinical Professor Drexel University Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Medical Response to Adult Sexual Assault is an outstanding text that mimics an encyclopedia as it covers a wide range of pertinent issues that include historical, medical, SANE, and legal perspectives. The book provides hard-to-find information about topics such as conducting a sexual assault examination, providing courtroom testimony, and identifying the complexities associated with crimes against vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly and incarcerated. The seasoned contributors bring the content alive with their experience, anecdotes, and superb writing. This text is most worthy of some precious space on your bookshelf. --Carol Anne Marchetti, PhD, RNCS, SANE Southeast Regional Coordinator MA Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program Boston, Massachusetts
