Why do some people become sexually aggressive while others become nonsexually aggressive? If we had answers to this question, we might be able to tailor much more effectively our efforts to intervene in the course of habitual aggressive behavior Further, being able to predict with some accuracy who would become dangerous, we could more confidently develop early intervention and treatment programs.
One on the most underresearched and clinically underserved populations is that of adult males who were sexually abused during childhood. While there has been a growing literature on the initial and long-term effects of sexual abuse on females (for a review see Browne and Finkelhor, 1986), few studies have examined the effects of child sexual abuse on males.
"How do you tell if what I say is real?" asked a patient.
Should sexually abused children and adolescents be screened for HIV antibody, and if so, what studies should be performed and when should they be repeated?
The purpose of Journal Highlights is to alert readers to current literature on child abuse. Selected articles from journals representing the variety of disciplines reflected in APSAC s membership are presented in the form of an annotated bibliography.
