Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Children

Apr. 28, 2016; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

PDF Presentation | PDF Resources

Child sexual abuse refers to the entire spectrum of sexual crimes and offenses in which children up to age 17 are victims. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau report Child Maltreatment 2010 found that 9.2 percent of victimized children were sexually assaulted with children being the most vulnerable to sexual abuse between the ages of 7 and 13. Child sexual abuse victims often feel significant distress and display a myriad of short- and long-term psychological symptoms and developmental delays, and they are at increased risk for experiencing future sexual assaults. The webinar will discuss promising strategies for prevention of child sexual abuse including school-based education, parent education, treatment for victims, treatment for juvenile and adult offenders, law enforcement training, and interviewer training.
