Shelden V E, Shelden R G: Sexual abuse of males by females: The problem, treatment modality, and case example.
Family Therapy 16(3): 249-258, 1989.
Abstract: Reviews literature on the sexual abuse of males by females, focusing on the sexual abuse of a male child by his mother. A treatment model known as neurolinguistic programming (NLP) is described. The primary focus in NLP is outcome. The task of the therapist is to identify behavior in which clients no longer wish to engage and to have clients state in specific positive terms their desired state. NLP, biofeedback, and other methods may be used to expose early sexual abuse as an underlying source of adult dysfunction; this discovery may be used to gain access to a disturbed family system. A case study is presented of a 42-yr-old male patient who was sexually abused by his mother and in which NLP was the treatment of choice. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
