Professionals are in the process of learning how to successfully treat sexual abuse. Factors which complicate the evaluation of treatment outcome are the following: there are a range of types of sexual abuse, a variety of relationships where there is risk for sexual abuse, and differing prognoses. Furthermore, professionals do not necessarily agree on what an appropriate course of treatment is. Unfortunately, in the field of sexual abuse at this time there is a tendency for professionals to make a strong ideological commitment to a particular treatment approach and to be unwilling to grant the possibility that other interventions have merit. This kind of inflexibility occurs in a context in which there has been hardly any evaluation of the effects of various interventions, the exceptions being the works of Kroth (1979) and Daro and Cohen (1984).
