Book Review: Review of Working with adult incest survivorsRésumé :
Reviews the book, Working with adult incest survivors by Sam Kirschner, Diana Adile Kirschner, and Richard L. Rappaport. This book takes the theoretical position of a family systems approach combined with elements of cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic theory. In an effort to be helpful to a wide variety of practitioners, the authors provide condensed descriptions of symptoms and techniques to address these symptoms. The reviewer points out several flaws in the text including inconsistencies in the theoretical interpretations and the oversimplification of extremely complex problems. However, the reviewer does recognize that this book is helpful and innovative in its focus on problems within the marital and family relationships created by the survivor experience and expressed in interpersonal relationships. The focus on family issues will be illuminating for many practitioners, especially those less familiar with systems approaches.
