Increasing public awareness of incest and child sexual abuse has focused attention on the many children who suffer from the unwanted sexual attentions of fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends of the family, neighbours or youth leaders. Of necessity, priority is being given to helping those children that are currently being sexually abused. But although increasing numbers of children appear to be disclosing their abuse, there are probably many more children who do not, as well as the many who have grown to adulthood without ever disclosing their abuse. Although little research has been specifically directed at retrospective treatment intervention with adult survivors, its importance is beginning to be recognized. "Counselling Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse" examines the theories which attempt to account for the occurrence of child sexual abuse, explains the traumatic impact of child sexual abuse, and looks at the ways in which these effects can be ameliorated and the adult healed. Treatment techniques and the role of the counsellor in employing these techniques are also discussed in such a way that the counsellor can make use of the book not only as a review of current theory, but also as a practical handbook for use with clients who may be adult survivors of child sexual abuse.

She is the author of The Seduction of Children, also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.Review:
This is an expanded and revised third edition of a well-respected text, and I cannot imagine there is a more comprehensive, account of the impact of sexual abuse on the adult survivors. (Mental Health Today, Feb 2007)
The publication of this edition should be welcomed. It has been totally updated and revised, with a different structure of chapter titles that are both clear and informative. Sanderson really thought hard about how to build on the earlier edition. (Community Care Magazine, January 2007)
There has been a large increase in awareness, knowledge and understanding of the issues that permeate childhood sexual abuse (CSA), both within the counselling field and the public. Much of this is down to the work of researchers and writers, such as Christine, who strive to bring together and report into the public domain what life is like, long term, for a survivor of CSA and the issues they have. There is much new material in this updated edition, such as in-depth chapters on self-harming behaviour, memory, sexuality and many more - all serving to provide the reader with a book that, despite the subject matter, is easy to read, follow and understand. In my opinion this book will be of great value to those already working with CSA survivors and essential for those who are considering such work. (Therapy Today)
The third edition of this helpful book is shaped by current research and the author's clinical experience, and links current knowledge in child sexual abuse (CSA) with its impact and long-term effects. There is a great deal to take in... but the effort is worthwhile. (The Psychologist)
This excellent book is comprehensive in addressing the complex issues of working with child sexual abuse (CSA). This thought-provoking and optimistic book gives valuable new insights surrounding CSA and its impact. Suitable for experienced practitioners and those new to counselling, both will be able to use it as a reference guide when working with survivors who have specific presenting symptoms, how best to work with such symptoms, and how they relate to CSA. I have worked within this field for almost 20 years and I welcome this valuable resource, it has increased both my understanding and knowledge, this helps me to be more effective in enabling a client move from, as Christiane states, "Victim to survivor to Feeling Alive". (Accord Magazine)
Praise for the second edition:
'Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse addresses the myths and mysteries while propelling a lifeline to both the health professional and the adult survivor. This is probably the most complete book on sexual abuse in publication.'(Nursing Ethics)
