9780253330451: The Hostage Child: Sex Abuse Allegations in Custody Disputes

This cogently-argued book is a timely contribution to the general literature on child sexual abuse." ―British Journal of Social Work

[The authors] have gathered information on 206 cases and focus on five representative examples that illustrate what they see as an increasing anti-mother bias in the courts. These five cases of the failure to safeguard children are... effective... Whatever may have happened in the past, the authors make a well-researched, convincing... case that the pendulum has now swung the other way. Now many lawyers, child advocates, psychologists and judges accept a ‘crazy mother’ or ‘vindictive ex-’ syndrome, thus allowing real perpetrators to continue abuse with no supervision.... In these cases, judges acquiesce to a paternalistic myth of the American family and in so doing, ignore the reality of American children." ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A needed assessment of a terrible problem." ―Booklist

... provocative... " ―Library Journal

Recommended." ―Choice

Without anger, or hysteria, Rosen and Etlin document the interlocking, complex ways in which our antiquated system fails incested children and those who struggle to protect them. Just as important, they propose an innovative solution. This is ‘must’ reading for anyone interested in the problem of child sexual abuse." ―Elizabeth Morgan, M.D., Ph.D.

It is comfortable to believe that incest and child sexual abuse need not concern us because we have institutions set up to deal with these problems. This book disallows that comfort and shows that the system has failed, and worse―that it has generated a dangerous atmosphere of denial and cover-up. While Rosen and Etlin expose a system whose breakdown is shocking and fundamental, at the same time they present a proposal for relief for the children who are now trapped―like hostages―in this social war.

From the Back Cover:

It is comfortable to believe that incest and child sexual abuse need not concern us because we have institutions to deal with these problems. This book disallows that complacency and shows that the systems has failed, and worse - that it has generated a dangerous atmosphere of denial and cover-up. Focusing on five case studies, Rosen and Etlin expose a systemic breakdown so fundamental, so irrational, and so shocking that the necessity of radical reform becomes patent. While explaining the historical, social, and psychological backdrop for this state of affairs, the authors refuse to minimize the problem. They demonstrate that most of the solutions being proposed by professionals in the field are doomed to frustration and failure. In their final chapter, Rosen and Etlin present a proposal for relief. While it is too late to undo the damage already done by the combined forces of child sexual abuse and institutional denial, this book can at least serve the children now trapped - like hostages - in this social war.
