Sibling incest

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Incest is a taboo and a neglected social problem that has only started to receive significant attention in the United States in the last 30 years. Sibling sexual abuse has been identified as the most common form of incest; however, the origins and scope of incest are still not well understood and existing research literature is laden with definitional inconsistencies, data limitations, and inadequate research methodology. The discussion to follow in this chapter moves beyond common discourse of sibling incest as "normal" sexual exploration and explores the phenomenon as a complex combination of biological and sociological concerns and knowledge of the psychological child development.
