Description
People of every age, ethnicity, and gender survive sexual assault, and their continued wellbeing
depends upon an informed and responsive network of medical, legal, and social service
practitioners. Best practices, accurate diagnoses, and up-to-date treatments administered by
these dedicated professionals protect sexual assault patients and hold perpetrators accountable
for their crimes. For the safety of survivors and in support of their professional caretakers,
Sexual Assault Quick Reference offers comprehensive, accessible guidelines for responding to

sexual assault, wherever it occurs.

 

The revised second edition of Sexual Assault Quick Reference provides updated information
on a variety of subjects, all in the same convenient format, including chapters on the physical
and forensic evaluation of patients across the life span, identifying and treating STIs (based
on the CDC’s 2015 Treatment Guidelines), mental health care for survivors and vicariously
traumatized practitioners, and the investigation and prosecution of sexual violence.
To address contemporary issues in a rapidly evolving field of practice, the second edition also
offers 4 all-new chapters covering:
——Disclosure processes, medical and mental health care, and legal proceedings for sexual
assault in the military
——The nature of human trafficking, common characteristics and identification of
trafficked persons, and physical and mental health issues for survivors
——Assessment, documentation, and treatment of injuries sustained via strangulation
——Understanding and responding to online sexual exploitation, including self-exploitation
and sexting, online sexual solicitation, and exposure to sexually explicit materials
Sexual Assault Quick Reference highlights specialized evaluative practices, common postassault
findings, standards of documentation, and appropriate avenues for reporting cases of sexual
assault to support the diagnosis, treatment, and prosecution of every variety of sexual violence.
Any professional who may encounter and service sexual assault survivors must come prepared
with the most up-to-date and accurate information in the field. Sexual Assault Quick Reference
ensures easy access to that vital knowledge when and where it is most needed.
