About the Author

Christiane Sanderson is a lecturer in Psychology at London University, Birkbeck College, and Consultant in the School of Psychology and Therapeutic Studies, University of Surrey, Roehampton. With 15 years' experience working in the child sexual abuse field, she has run workshops for parents, teachers, social workers, nurses, therapists and counsellors to increase knowledge and awareness of CSA. She is the author of Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse (2nd edition), also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.


The book covers a lot of ground, ranging from international commercial sexual exploitation of children to abuse via the internet. Throughout the book, there are checklists that highlight important information about what to look out for and what to do. I felt that these were really useful and gave appropriate and current information, which could be easily accessed. -- Children Now
The Seduction of Children - a title that grabs your attention. It is a well-written, well-researched book encapsulating all areas, challenging the myths surrounding the secrecy of CSA (Child Sexual Abuse) and presents the facts and patterns of CSA- psychologically, socially, historically, culturally and from today... Overall, it is an emotive, revealing and honest book, with Sanderson all the while acknowledging that knowledge and beliefs around CSA vary enormously. It is worthwhile and valuable reading - for professionals and parents alike. -- Napot Journal
Any child care professional would gain useful knowledge from this informative book. -- Community Care
