Sexually transmitted diseases in abused children and adolescent and adult victims of rape: review of selected literature. (1/503)

Sexual assault (defined as sexual relations with another person obtained through physical force, threat, or intimidation) of children includes genital fondling, photographing, or viewing for sexual gratification; exposure of the child to pornographic material or to adult sexual activity; and attempted or successful penetration of any of the child's orifices. The purpose of this investigation was to review the medical literature published since 1988 that reported on the prevalence of particular sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in populations of sexually assaulted adults and adolescents and sexually abused children, as well as the prevalence of sexual abuse among children who present with an STD. These data will be helpful for managing cases of sexual assault involving children, adolescents, or adults; estimating the risk of abuse among children with specific STDs; and identifying research priorities in this area.  (+info)

Toward sensitive practice: issues for physical therapists working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. (2/503)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The high rates of prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in the United States and Canada suggest that physical therapists work, often unknowingly, with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purposes of this qualitative study were to explore the reactions of adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to physical therapy and to listen to their ideas about how practitioners could be more sensitive to their needs. The dynamics and long-term sequelae of childhood sexual abuse, as currently understood by mental health researchers and as described by the participants, are summarized to provide a context for the findings of this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven female survivors (aged 19-62 years) participated in semistructured interviews in which they described their reactions to physical therapy. RESULTS: Survivors' reactions to physical therapy, termed "long-term sequelae of abuse that detract from feeling safe in physical therapy," are reported. Participant-identified suggestions that could contribute to the sense of safety are shared. CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: Although the physical therapist cannot change the survivor's history, an appreciation of issues associated with child sexual abuse theoretically can increase clinicians' understanding of survivors' reactions during treatment. We believe that attention by the physical therapist to the client's sense of safety throughout treatment can maximize the benefits of the physical therapy experience for the client who is a survivor.  (+info)

Lifetime prevalence, characteristics, and associated problems of non-consensual sex in men: cross sectional survey. (3/503)

OBJECTIVE: To identify the lifetime prevalence of non-consensual sexual experiences in men, the relationship between such experiences as a child and as an adult, associated psychological and behavioural problems, and help received. DESIGN: Cross sectional survey. SETTING: England. SUBJECTS: 2474 men (mean age 46 years) attending one of 18 general practices. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Experiences of non-consensual and consensual sex before and after the age of 16 years-that is, as a child and adult respectively-psychological problems experienced for more than 2 weeks at any one time, use of alcohol (CAGE questionnaire), self harm, and help received. RESULTS: 2474 of 3142 men (79%) agreed to participate; 71/2468 (standardised rate 2.89%, 95% confidence interval 2.21% to 3.56%) reported non-consensual sexual experiences as adults, 128/2423 (5.35%, 4.39% to 6.31%) reported non-consensual sexual experiences as children, and 185/2406 (7.66%, 6.54% to 8.77%) reported consensual sexual experiences as children that are illegal under English law. Independent predictors of non-consensual sex as adults were reporting male sexual partners (odds ratio 6.0, 2.6 to 13.5), non-consensual sex in childhood (4.2, 2.1 to 8.6), age (0.98, 0.96 to 0.99), and sex of interviewer (2.0, 1.2 to 3.5). Non-consensual sexual experiences were associated with a greater prevalence of psychological problems, alcohol misuse, and self harm. These sexual experiences were also significant predictors of help received from mental health professionals. CONCLUSION: Almost 3% of men in England report non-consensual sexual experiences as adults. Medical professionals need to be aware of the range of psychological difficulties in men who have had such experiences. They also need to be aware of the relationship between sexual experiences in childhood and adulthood in men.  (+info)

Psychosocial correlates of health compromising behaviors among adolescents. (4/503)

The objective of the present study was to examine psychosocial correlates of diverse health-compromising behaviors among adolescents of different ages. The study population included 123,132 adolescents in sixth, ninth and 12th grades. Psychosocial correlates of substance abuse, delinquency, suicide risk, sexual activity and unhealthy weight loss behaviors were examined. Risk-taking disposition was significantly associated with nearly every behavior across age and gender groups. Other consistent correlates included sexual abuse and family connectedness. Correlates of health-compromising behaviors tended to be consistent across age groups. However, stronger associations were noted between sexual abuse and substance use for younger adolescents, and risk-taking disposition and school achievement were stronger correlates for older youth. The results suggest the presence of both common and unique etiological factors for different health-compromising behaviors among youth. The results emphasize the importance of focusing on positive 'risk-taking' experiences for youth in prevention programs; being sensitive to possible sexual abuse experiences among both female and male adolescents in health-care consultations; integrating strategies for improved family connectedness into health promotion efforts; and making school relevant for all adolescents.  (+info)

Neural correlates of memories of childhood sexual abuse in women with and without posttraumatic stress disorder. (5/503)

OBJECTIVE: Childhood sexual abuse is very common in our society, but little is known about the long-term effects of abuse on brain function. The purpose of this study was to measure neural correlates of memories of childhood abuse in sexually abused women with and without the diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). METHOD: Twenty-two women with a history of childhood sexual abuse underwent injection of [15O]H2O, followed by positron emission tomography imaging of the brain while they listened to neutral and traumatic (personalized childhood sexual abuse events) scripts. Brain blood flow during exposure to traumatic and neutral scripts was compared for sexually abused women with and without PTSD. RESULTS: Memories of childhood sexual abuse were associated with greater increases in blood flow in portions of anterior prefrontal cortex (superior and middle frontal gyri-areas 6 and 9), posterior cingulate (area 31), and motor cortex in sexually abused women with PTSD than in sexually abused women without PTSD. Abuse memories were associated with alterations in blood flow in medial prefrontal cortex, with decreased blood flow in subcallosal gyrus (area 25), and a failure of activation in anterior cingulate (area 32). There was also decreased blood flow in right hippocampus, fusiform/inferior temporal gyrus, supramarginal gyrus, and visual association cortex in women with PTSD relative to women without PTSD. CONCLUSIONS: These findings implicate dysfunction of medial prefrontal cortex (subcallosal gyrus and anterior cingulate), hippocampus, and visual association cortex in pathological memories of childhood abuse in women with PTSD. Increased activation in posterior cingulate and motor cortex was seen in women with PTSD. Dysfunction in these brain areas may underlie PTSD symptoms provoked by traumatic reminders in subjects with PTSD.  (+info)

Prior interpersonal trauma: the contribution to current PTSD symptoms in female rape victims. (6/503)

The purpose of the current study was to disentangle the relationship of childhood sexual abuse and childhood physical abuse from prior adult sexual and physical victimization in predicting current posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in recent rape victims. The participants were a community sample of 117 adult rape victims assessed within 1 month of a recent index rape for a history of child sexual abuse, child physical abuse, other adult sexual and physical victimization, and current PTSD symptoms. Results from path analyses showed that a history of child sexual abuse seems to increase vulnerability for adult sexual and physical victimization and appears to contribute to current PTSD symptoms within the cumulative context of other adult trauma.  (+info)

Domestic violence and childhood sexual abuse in HIV-infected women and women at risk for HIV. (7/503)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence and effect of domestic violence and childhood sexual abuse in women with HIV or at risk for HIV infection. METHODS: Participants with HIV or at risk for HIV infection enrolled in the Women's Interagency HIV Study. Childhood sexual abuse; all physical, sexual, and coercive violence by a partner; HIV serostatus; demographic data; and substance use and sexual habits were assessed. RESULTS: The lifetime prevalence of domestic violence was 66% and 67%, respectively, in 1288 women with HIV and 357 uninfected women. One quarter of the women reported recent abuse, and 31% of the HIV-seropositive women and 27% of the HIV-seronegative women reported childhood sexual abuse. Childhood sexual abuse was strongly associated with a lifetime history of domestic violence and high-risk behaviors, including using drugs, having more than 10 male sexual partners and having male partners at risk for HIV infection, and exchanging sex for drugs, money, or shelter. CONCLUSIONS: Our data support the hypothesis of a continuum of risk, with early childhood abuse leading to later domestic violence, which may increase the risk of behaviors leading to HIV infection.  (+info)

The man who claimed to be a paedophile. (8/503)

A psychiatrist recounts a case of a man presenting with severe depression who claimed to have abused children and his pet dog. Clinical management of the case hinged on whether this claim was true, a lie or delusional. The uncertainty over this raised complex ethical dilemmas regarding confidentiality and protection of the public (and animals).  (+info)

This article focuses mainly on the impact of child sexual abuse on social and interpersonal functioning, as these aspects have often been overlooked in past literature on the subject. The authors examine the impact of child sexual abuse on mental health problems in adults from the post-traumatic stress disorder model, the traumatogenic model, and developmental and social models. The authors then go on to examine family risk factors that contribute to the prevalence of child sexual abuse. They explain that child sexual abuse is not evenly distributed throughout the population. Rather, it tends to occur in families that are disorganized and socially deprived. The authors also point out that when sexual abuse of children is present, there also tends to be physical and emotional abuse occurring in the family as well. The article goes on to recount the fundamental damage caused to individuals who have been the victim of child sexual abuse, including a diminished capacity to trust, a lack of intimacy ...

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (the Royal Commission) conducted an extensive five-year (between 2012 and 2017) inquiry. The result was 85 recommendations aimed at reforming the criminal justice system in Australia to provide fairer responses to victims of institutional child sexual abuse.. The recommendations covered police and prosecution responses; sentences and appeals; evidence of complainants; and relevantly, the recommendation of failure to report and failure to protect offences (Recommendations 33-35).. These offences were recommended in light of the under-reporting of child sexual abuse within an institutional setting to external governmental authorities where abuse was known or suspected. In adopting the failure to report recommendation, the Queensland Government has made it mandatory for adults (anyone over 18 years of age) to disclose information to a police officer about child sexual abuse (past or present). This is irrespective if the ...
This paper reviews the literature on the nature and incidence of child sexual abuse, explores the link between child sexual abuse and later sexual exploitation, and reviews the literature on prevention strategies and effective interventions in child sexual abuse services. Our understanding of the international epidemiology of child sexual abuse is considerably greater than it was just 10 years ago, and studies from around the world are examined. Childhood sexual abuse can involve a wide number of psychological sequelae, including low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. Numerous studies have noted that child sexual abuse victims are vulnerable to later sexual revictimization, as well as the link between child sexual abuse and later engagement in high-risk sexual behaviour. Survivors of child sexual abuse are more likely to have multiple sex partners, become pregnant as teenagers, and experience sexual assault as adults. Various models which attempt to account for this inter-relatio... ...
Sinn Féin TD for Limerick City Maurice Quinlivan this evening challenged the Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh on the treatment of survivors of child sexual abuse by this government.. Deputy Quinlivan called on the Minister to stop using the courts to fight survivors of child sexual abuse and provide them with compensation that will allow them to get justice and move on with their lives.. Speaking in the Dáil this evening, the Limerick City TD said:. This is a topic that I have a deep personal interest in, having worked closely for a number of years now with members of VOCADS and survivors of abuse from Creagh Lane National School.. To be honest, Im absolutely disgusted at how survivors of historical child sexual abuse have been treated by Fine Gael and by previous governments.. These men are currently barred from accessing compensation for the horrific abuse they suffered, and the government has steadfastly stood in their way of justice.. Last July the Dáil instructed this ...
The UKs Internet Watch Foundation found 68,092 URLs containing child sexual abuse imagery and hosted on 1,991 domains worldwide according to their latest annual report published Thursday.The IWF, the UK online child sexual abuse charity, found these 68,092 URLs hosting child sexual abuse content were traced to 48 countries, which is an increase from 45 in 2014. And five top level domains (.com, .net, .ru, .org and .se) accounted for 91 percent of all webpages identified as containing child sexual abuse images and videos.And for the first time the IWF saw these new gTLDs being used to share child sexual abuse imagery. The IWF believes many of these domains in new gTLDs have been registered specifically for that purpose.The IWF took action on 436 websites in 2015 using new gTLD domains to share child sexual abuse material. 138 of these were disguised websites.To assist registries and registrars that are members of IWF in taking down domain names that are used to host child sexual abuse content, ...

In 2018, over 45 million images and videos were flagged as child sexual abuse on the dark web. Technology companies like Facebook and Google reported a record of 45 million online photos and videos of child sexual abuse in 2018. They are legally required to report images of child abuse when they discover them and not to investigate them. Although Facebook and Google have stepped up surveillance of their platforms, other companies fail to work with law enforcement when they are conducting investigations. Tumblr was named as being the most problematic [of technology] companies, and not quick to respond to urgent inquiries from authorities. Part of the problem with catching perpetrators includes the ability of offenders to cover their tracks, mask their locations, utilization of encryption techniques, and posting on the dark web. Law enforcement have a short window to get data before offenders destroy it.. Eleven years ago, Protect Our Children Act (P.L. 110-401) was passed in 2008, and ...
With the rise in reporting of sexual abuse of children, the Baptist Standard is stepping away from our normal year-end round-up to publish something different than the ongoing and important news coverage of these tragedies.. In a Dec. 27 special edition on child sexual abuse, we hope to open the door to healing and restoration for victims and survivors and to help individuals, families and churches to become safer for the most vulnerable among us.. We realize sexual abuse is a very sensitive topic. There are those who have been sexually abused who cannot read one more story about this traumatizing experience being inflicted on yet one more child. There are those who mourn the hurt done to their children and being betrayed by people they trusted. There are those who have worked hard to overcome their experience and are ready to move on. There are those who have never told a soul about their terrible secret. There are those fortunate enough not to understand child sexual abuse but who care very ...
Natural News) The National Center on Sexual Exploitation Law Center (NCOSE), The Haba Law Firm, and The Matiasic Firm are suing Twitter on behalf of a second survivor of child sexual abuse who was trafficked on the social media platform..

Except in limited circumstances, federal laws typically do not apply to child sexual abuse matters that takes place wholly inside a single state. These matters are therefore generally handled by state or local authorities and prosecuted under state laws. However, if the sexual abuse of a child occurred on federal lands, the offense may be prosecuted under federal law. Federal lands include areas such as military bases, Indian territories, and other government- owned lands or properties (See 18 U.S.C. §7).. Under federal law, offenders convicted of sexually abusing a child face fines and imprisonment. Furthermore, an offender may face harsher penalties if the crime occurred in aggravated circumstances, which include, for example, the offender used force or threats, inflicted serious bodily injury or death, or kidnapped a child in the process of committing child sexual abuse.. ...
It could be argued that critical conversations are the mechanism in which tangible social change can occur. The art of sharing, arguing, or deconstructing theoretical concepts, until they become more malleable for practice, is not easy, but moves us in the field of child sexual abuse prevention to the places we want to go. As an example, the Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation has released the Six Pillars of Prevention to build a dialogue around the creation of a comprehensive policy agenda to benefit children and prevent sexual abuse. In this web conference, participants will learn how policy matters in prevention work, and what tools they can use to bridge the theory of action with the practice of action.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA), led by Prof. Alexis Jay, is investigating the extent to which institutions in England and Wales failed to protect children from sexual abuse.
The prevalence of HIV among men who have sex with men (MSM) is estimated at an alarming 19% domestically (CDC 2010), rates comparable to endemic settings in certain regions of sub-Saharan Africa where approximately 20% of the adult population is HIV infected. Studies have also demonstrated a staggeringly high prevalence of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) in MSM, and shown an association between CSA and HIV risk in MSM. A successful intervention for MSM with a CSA history to prevent HIV has the potential to avert infections among some of the riskiest members of the most HIV vulnerable group in the U.S. Notwithstanding the ability of the existing HIV prevention interventions to show reductions in sexual risk taking, the recent successes of chemoprophylaxis, current policy initiatives, and empirically supported recommendations, all support development of combination prevention interventions that can specify multiple prevention targets, address related risk factors and barriers, and are grounded in a ...

Sinn Féin Justice spokesperson Martin Kenny TD has welcomed Judge Iarfhlaith ONeills report finding that an ECHR ruling had been misinterpreted and had denied victims of historical child sexual abuse access to a redress scheme to which they are entitled. Deputy Kenny said:. Judge ONeills report is welcome and should serve to encourage survivors of historical child sexual abuse in their struggle for justice and for compensation.. The state has been guilty of obstructing victims in that struggle and one Minister for Education after another, including Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin, despite his statements now, have forced victims of abuse to protest publicly in order to be heard.. Then they were obliged to go to the European Court of Human Rights to highlight the injustice they were fighting.. I hope the government will not delay another day in acting on this report and ensure that compensation is paid to those survivors who have waited so long and fought so hard.. The state has ...
Family structure is the most important risk factor in child sexual abuse. Children who live with two married biological parents are at low risk for abuse. The risk increases when children live with step-parents or a single parent. Children living without either parent (foster children) are 10 times more likely to be sexually abused than children that live with both biological parents. Children who live with a single parent that has a live-in partner are at the highest risk: they are 20 times more likely to be victims of child sexual abuse than children living with both biological parents (Sedlack, et. al., 2010 ...

Millions of images of child sexual abuse circulate freely on the internet each day, not only in obscure corners of the dark web, but also on some of the most popular web platforms. The Canadian Centre for Child Protections (C3P) research found most web platforms lack content reporting functions specific to child sexual abuse material (CSAM). In contrast, with copyright infringement, reporting tools devoted to the issue are largely a universal standard.
Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program CSAPP began in 1995 and aims to reduce the incidence and impact of child sexual abuse among Australian children.

Like children and youth, adults experience a range of affects from childhood sexual abuse. Some individuals work through their abuse and experience minimal current impact. Others are devastated by the abuse and deal with the ramifications of it every day of their adult lives. Still others grow as a result of the abuse, even becoming advocates or helpers for other victims of abuse.. Researchers Laura Murray, Amanda Nguyen and Judith Cohen point out in their article Child Sexual Abuse in the journal Child and Adolescents Psychiatric Clinics of North America that adult survivors of sexual abuse can experience health problems, may struggle with drugs and alcohol, face marriage and family relational challenges, and are at increased risk for future sexual victimization and high-risk sexual behaviors.. Commonly, victimized adults have strong feelings of shame, which can lead to feelings of embarrassment and of being exposed. Adult survivors often are quite secretive about their abuse histories, ...
(Albany, NY) The Senate today passed the Child Victims Act (S.2440) and reformed New York States outdated statute of limitations for child sexual abuse. The Child Victims Act will raise the criminal statute of limitations for child sexual abuse crimes by five years and raise the civil statute of limitations for causes of action brought by someone seeking redress for physical, psychological or other injury caused by child sexual abuse to age 55.

TY - JOUR. T1 - The policing of child sexual abuse in England and Wales. AU - Parker, Howard. AU - Gallagher, Bernard. AU - Hughes, Beverley. PY - 1996. Y1 - 1996. N2 - During the 1980s sexual abuse was defined as a serious problem with public concern being amplified by both extensive media coverage and a series of high profile public enquiries into bungled child abuse investigations involving the police, social services and other agencies. Police Forces responded by setting up specialist Child Abuse Units dedicated to child protection through multi‐agency working. To date these specialist teams have focused their attention on child victims and improving inter‐agency decision making and rescuing children from abusive situations. However, with workloads increasing and ever more complex organised cases coming to light these teams face genuine role strains in that they are ill equipped to undertake detective work, to investigate large scale cases and to monitor, track and, where ...
Child sexual abuse is a contested social issue, both when children make reports andwhen adults describe sexual victimization that occurred during their childhoods. In large part, controversies emanate from the competing interests ofthose directly involved in the sexual abuse allegation, reported victims, and perpetrators (Faller, 1984). Issues in dispute that are highlighted in these three books are the occurrence ofsexual abuse in particular cases, the prevalence and severity ofsexual abuse, and the effects of sexual abuse. The three books discussed in this review straddle these sexual abuse controversies. Critical Issues in Child Sexual Abuse: Historical, Legal, andPsychological Perspectives is an edited series ofarticles that draws upon social science and legal research to document the existence and seriousness ofchild sexual abuse, focusing primarily on child victims. In contrast, Anatomy of the McMartin Child Molestation Case is an account ofthe investigation and litigation of a high-profile day
Child sexual abuse affects thousands of families each year. Issues pertaining to the prevalence, identification, and treatment of sexual abuse have been relatively well explored in the literature as they pertain to the dominant European American culture. These issues, however, are still relatively unexplored in terms of how sexual abuse affects Asian American families and the Asian American community. We review the relevant literature in Asian American families. These matters are explored in the context of Asian American values such as collectivity, conformity, inconspicuousness, middle position virtue, shame, self-control, and fatalism. Attitudes toward family, sexuality, and the mental health system are also discussed. Cultural and institutional barriers to underutilizing mental health services are also explored, and suggestions for overcoming these barriers are offered.

Historical child sexual abuse victim receives $435,000 in compensation for sexual abuse suffered at a NSW youth group in 1980s with the help of GMP Lawyers.
Background The disclosure of widespread sexual abuse committed by professional educators and clergymen in institutions in Germany ignited a national political debate, in which special attention was paid to church-run institutions. than those who had been in secular institutions. Almost half the victims had been abused physically as well as sexually, and most victims reported that the abuse had occurred repeatedly and that the assaults had been committed by males. Patterns of abuse (time, type, and extent), and the gender of the offenders did not differ between the three groups. Intercourse was more frequently reported by older victims and by females. Similar percentages of victims in all groups reported current psychiatric diagnoses (depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD). Significantly more victims from Protestant institutions reported having current psychosocial problems. Conclusion The results suggest that child sexual abuse in institutions is attributable to the nature of institutional ...
When educating young people about family life and sexuality, educators need to be sensitive to the fact that one or more youth in their group is or has been a victim of child sexual abuse. Youth who have been victims of sexual abuse will hear discussions about sexuality differently than other teens. For them, sex may not have been a pleasurable event, and negotiating the use of protection is almost always impossible. Occasionally, open discussions of sexuality may lead to a youth making a disclosure about abuse to the educator or to the class. Because many of us are uncomfortable with the thought of a young person telling us that he or she has been abused, its helpful to have some guidelines for handling this situation before it occurs. There are four critical elements to handling a disclosure effectively. They are: ...
American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Definitions Childhood sexual abuse can be defined as any exposure to sexual acts imposed on children who inherently lack the emotional, maturational, and cognitive development to understand or to consent to such acts. These acts do not always involve sexual intercourse or physical force; rather, they involve manipulation and trickery. Authority and power enable the perpetrator to coerce the child into compliance. Characteristics and motivations of perpetrators of childhood sexual abuse vary: some may act out sexually to exert dominance over another individual; others may initiate the abuse for their own sexual gratification (5, 6). Although specific legal definitions may vary among states, there is widespread agreement that abusive sexual contact can include breast and genital fondling, oral and anal sex, and vaginal intercourse. Definitions have been expanded to include noncontact events such as coercion to watch sexual acts or posing in child ...

Public health social marketing campaigns have targeted adults to prevent drinking and driving, smoking, and human immunodeficiency virus transmission (1,2); however, adults have not been targeted for prevention of child sexual abuse. In Vermont, STOP IT NOW! addresses child sexual abuse systematically as a public health issue by using social marketing and public education to emphasize the responsibility of adults for prevention. As one component of STOP IT NOW!, Vermont sex offender treatment providers and state attorneys offices were surveyed in September 1997 to assess self-reported abuse by adults and adolescents. This report summarizes the results of the survey, which indicate that some adults who abuse will turn themselves in voluntarily for treatment despite mandated reporting to the legal system, and some parents will intervene to seek help for their children who have sexual behavior problems even without a victims report. Continued studies are needed to evaluate this approach to ...

These CSTAPs are well known for being true community-based treatment systems. Their effectiveness lies in the integrated interventions of human service personnel, law enforcement officers, judicial system officials, members of the programs self-help groups, and members of a large cadre of volunteers.

Method: Semistructured narrative interviews with nine women with mild intellectual disability in Queensland, Australia. Interviews were audio recorded, transcribed, coded and analysed qualitatively. Results: Major themes that emerged were: sexual knowledge and sources of knowledge; negotiating sexual relationships; declining unwanted sexual contact; self protection strategies; sexual abuse experiences; and sequelae of sexual ...
The termpedophileis commonly used to describe all child sexual abuse offenders, including those who do not meet the clinical diagnosis standards, which is seen as problematic by researchers, as most distinguish between child molesters and pedophiles. A perpetrator of child sexual abuse is commonly assumed to be and referred to as a pedophile; however, there may be other motivations for the crime (such as stress, marital problems, or the unavailability of an adult partner). As child sexual abuse may or may not be an indicator that its perpetrator is a pedophile, offenders may be separated into two types: Exclusive (i.e., true pedophiles) and non-exclusive (or, in some cases, non-pedophilic). According to a U.S. study on 2429 adult male sex offenders who were categorized as pedophiles, only 7% identified themselves as exclusive; indicating that many or most child sexual abusers may fall into the non-exclusive category. However, the Mayo Clinic reports perpetrators who meet the diagnostic ...
CALGARY-The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre is launching a month-long campaign aimed at promoting support for child abuse victims and the prevention of sexual and physical abuse.. The announcement came Monday as the centre marked its five-year anniversary and October as Child Abuse Prevention Month in conjunction with the provincial government.. (Its) a bittersweet moment, said the centres CEO Sara Austin. In our first five years, we served more than 7,500 children and youth. And we see, on average, 130 new cases of child abuse every single month.. She said the campaign uses a broad definition of child abuse that encompasses all forms - physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, and neglect.. But the centres mandate, she said, is to support the prevention of all forms of sexual abuse of children, as well as the most severe forms of physical abuse or neglect.. Thats why the day is bittersweet - the 7,500-plus children served by the centre represent victims of sexual abuse and the most ...

Well, Richard Dawkins, an atheist and the author of The God Delusion, recently made a controversial statement during an interview that raising your child to believe in hell is worse than sexual abuse. Dawkins tells the interviewer, It seems to me that telling children such that they really, really believe that people who sin are going to go to hell and roast forever . . . . It seems to me to be intuitively entirely reasonable that that is a worse form of child abuse that will give more nightmares, that will give more genuine distress than being sexually abused. (You can view the whole video clip on YouTube.). Now, Dawkins is known for his extreme distaste for Christianity and the God of the Bible. But his outrageous statements in that interview show his open rebellion against God, and they stirred a lot of debate. Even some secularists have been upset with what he had to say.. Really, as Ive said many times, Dawkins is trying to convince himself. He is, so to speak, putting his hands over his ...
Some of the acts were alleged to have happened more than three decades ago. One of the charges stemmed from a 2015 police report, in which a 15-year-old girl said the former superintendent restrained her and tried to kiss her while she was babysitting at his Blackwell home, court and police reports show. Young was not charged at the time and kept his job for years until the report surfaced again earlier this year. District Attorney Brian Hermanson, who was voted into office in 2010, declined to comment on the charges. Also on Wednesday, Youngs daughter, who was an alleged victim named in the criminal charges, filed a civil case in federal court alleging he sexually abused her as a child. The charges and case brought on behalf of Youngs daughter, Ashlee Tollett, now 38, would not have been permissible under Oklahoma law only three years ago.

Understanding the pervasiveness of sexual abuse in society is difficult for two reasons: Victims often do not feel comfortable reporting their abuse and abuse often occurs at such an early age that victims cannot accurately remember it.[25] False reports of abuse can be disruptive to all involved from the supposed victim to the alleged attacker whose reputation is then sullied. The nature of sexual abuse leads many to become overly afraid and suspicious about the possibility, resulting in scares such as the Daycare Sexual Abuse hysteria in the 1980s and 1990s, in which daycare workers were accused of ritual sexual abuse of children in America, Canada, and New Zealand. During the scare, concerned police officers used questionable interrogation tactics on children to elicit tales of abuse by their parents and caregivers, many of which were later found to be untrue.[26] Victims fear reporting their abuse for a number of reasons. First, they are often abused by a close contact and may have mixed ...

Tricia Jessiman, Research Associate in the School for Policy Studies, reports on a study of therapeutic support for children affected by sexual abuse.. It has at times felt difficult to keep up with overlapping high profile Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) scandals dominating the UK headlines in recent years. Jimmy Saville, Operation Yewtree, Rotherham, the Westminster Paedophile Ring - the headlines have kept coming in. There has been rather less media coverage on the impact of sexual abuse on those children who experience it. The academic literature tells us that CSA is associated with a range of psychological and behavioural symptoms in both childhood and adulthood including post-traumatic stress (PTSD), depression, alcohol and drug misuse, suicide, and self-harming behaviour. Children who have been sexually abused need help - but it may not be readily available. The NSPCCs current campaign, Its Time, seeks to highlight the scarcity of therapeutic support in the UK for children who have ...

ABSTRACT. Child sexual abuse is a global phenomenon that affects many families and appears to be increasing dramatically in South Africa. The literature on child sexual abuse focuses mainly on the victims and perpetrators while largely ignoring the experiences of non-offending mothers. The objective of this study was to explore the lived experiences of mothers whose children were sexually abused by their intimate male partners. Existential phenomenology was employed in the study, and Braun and Clarkes (2006) six-phase thematic analysis was used to analyse the data. The results indicate that the participants experienced emotions similar to those following loss including disbelief, anger, guilt, depression, trust and blame.. ...

JTA) - Three hundred Orthodox rabbis have signed a proclamation urging those suspecting child sex abuse to notify secular authorities and calling on Jewish institutions to take preventative measures to prevent abuse.. The letter, which was released Thursday and signed by rabbis from the the United States, Canada, Israel and Europe, recognizes that Orthodox communities could have responded in more responsible and sensitive ways to help victims and to hold perpetrators accountable. It also condemns attempts to ignore or silence abuse victims and witnesses.. Those suspecting sexual abuse do not need to seek rabbinic approval before contacting civil authorities, the proclamation states.. We condemn attempts to ignore allegations of child sexual abuse. These efforts are harmful, contrary to Jewish law, and immoral, it said. The reporting of reasonable suspicions of all forms of child abuse and neglect directly and promptly to the civil authorities is a requirement of Jewish law.. The letter ...

The medical literature on the frequency of sexual abuse of pediatric patients by providers is sparse9,-,11 compared with what is known about abuse of adult patients. Likewise, there are few data on the incidence of pedophilia among pediatricians. What is known about sexual misconduct by physicians comes from surveys of physicians, surveys of adult patients, and studies of abusive physicians and of children reported for sexual abuse concerns. Data on sexual abuse of adult patients and the physicians who abuse them are reported to provide context to the epidemiology and offender behavior of patient sexual abuse.. Surveys of physicians and patients have revealed that sexual relations between physicians and adult patients are not rare and involve approximately 10% of all medical specialists who care for adults.12 Fifty-six percent of these physicians indicated that they had never received training in provider-patient sexual boundaries. Most of them believed that sexual contact with current patients ...

Pennsylvania sexual abuse victims lawyer Andrew Shubin discusses important deadlines for filing a lawsuit if you were sexually abused in PA.
Typically sibling or cousin sexual contact is defined as abuse when it is marked by a five year difference; when the children are less than five years apart in age, the interaction is not deemed abusive unless force, coercion, injury, or penetration occurs. The criteria of force and/or coercion may be the most highly associated with negative outcomes, regardless of the specific sexual behavior (e.g., kissing, fondling, simulated intercourse, or exhibition) experienced (Haugaard and Tilly, 1988). Incidence of sibling or cousin sexual abuse varies greatly among studies, ranging from 10% to 40% among those reporting sexual abuse, although sibling and cousin sexual abuse are about equal in such samples (De Jong, 1988). Typically, the abuse begins when the victim is around six to seven years of age.. It is unclear whether non abuse contacts always result in psychological harm or maladjustment. It may be that normal sexual curiosity between siblings and cousins that happens only once is not ...
