A guide for working with families affected by child sexual abuse

A guide to help professionals support parents/carers if concerns about sexual abuse have surfaced has been produced by the Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse.

The resource aims to help professionals provide a “confident, supportive response” to parents/carers when concerns about the sexual abuse of their child have been raised or abuse has been identified.

It also includes a specific section aimed at teachers and school staff, including advice on supporting the child themselves as well as their family.

The CSA Centre states: “For parents and carers, discovering that their child may have been sexually abused is one of the most devastating events they can experience.

“This new guide helps professionals provide a confident, supportive response when concerns about the sexual abuse of a parent or carer’s child have been raised or identified.”
