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.
