Sexual Assault: Victimization Across the Life Span is a two-volume collection. The mission of the publisher, GW Medical Publishing, is “to become the world leader in publishing and information
services on child abuse, maltreatment and diseases, and domestic violence.”
The editors of the first volume, A Clinical Guide, are physicians with specialties in pediatrics, emergency medicine,
and obstetrics-gynecology. Their goal is “to propagate information necessary
to promote change, to better protect, and to better care for victims of sexual
assault and sexual abuse.” The information contained is directed to
all disciplines that provide care for victims and handle offender dispositions,
including prehospital personnel, detectives, skilled medical staff, rape crisis
counselors, and sexual assault examiners.
