Growing Up Sexually(Bibliographies)
16/ Childhood Sexual Abuse and Social Constructionism
Formerly an addendum to Growing Up Sexually Volume II, chapter 14. These resources (late 1980s to date) converge in the assumption that “abuse”, “abuser” and “anti-abuse” categories connote “social constructions” that can be examined as such. Whether this bias can be called amoral or subversive remains, of course, beyond the scope of this bibliography. Users are kindly remembered to regard constructionist biases as plural. Please note Compiler’s bifurcation of references as of “Main” interest, and those designated “Related”.
Note: this bibliography may be updated monthly.
