Sexual harassment is commonly regarded as a criminal offence that needs to be dealt with sternly using both disciplinary and legal provisions. This approach unfortunately leaves the crucial subject of mental health and social aspects of such behaviour largely untouched. The intervention and treatment model for sexual harassment calls for an effective, flexible and integrative approach focused on both internal and external needs. It requires a close understanding of both the workplace and the social environment. 

This book provides an exhaustive discussion of sexual harassment, with particular focus on legal aspects as well as the wide spectrum of psychological and social consequences. It focuses on the much-needed evaluation and assessment of the perpetrators, their psychopathology and its redressal, from both clinical and social perspectives. Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplaces makes wide-ranging recommendations for improvement in the current situation, making it indispensable for all stakeholders working for the eradication of this menace from the society.
