Although memories may fade or experiences be denied, the abuse changes the child's perspective toward him- or herself and others and toward his or her expectations of life. Hence, the need for this book on child therapy that is the result of the work of the Sexual Abuse Child Consultancy Service (SACCS), which was founded more than 20 years ago by Mary Walsh and Madge Bray in response to requests for treatment for abused children.</p><p>A three-pronged treatment program has gradually emerged from SACCS's efforts. First, therapeutic parenting in small “family based homes for up to five children and a care team of ten adults” (p. 22) is implemented to enhance the development of a primary positive attachment to replace the negative bonding with abusive adults.
