How does incest in childhood affect personality development in adulthood? What conditions in the family encourage incestuous situations? What are typical characteristics of incestuous fathers? Until the publication of this book, many questionsMoreHow does incest in childhood affect personality development in adulthood? What conditions in the family encourage incestuous situations? What are typical characteristics of incestuous fathers? Until the publication of this book, many questions remained about the effects of incest in childhood on psychological functioning in later life. In this groundbreaking work, Meiselman examines all types of incestuous behavior and offers practical recommendations for detecting incest occurrences, handling cases, assessing individual and family incest problems, and making effective treatment interventions. I can wholeheartedly recommend it to any professional who deals with patients, not only as the most comprehensive work available on this subject, but as a model of its kind.--Journal of Marital and Family Therapy.
