Wife rape: barriers to identification and treatment.

Abstract

Sexual abuse of women by husbands or long-term lovers is emerging as a significant problem in our society. Identification and treatment of this problem by the psychiatric community may be constricted by a value system that condones secrecy and tolerates abuse. This paper focuses on the significant clinical issues in such cases and offers suggestions for interventions that break down barriers between patient and therapist.
