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.
