Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperForeword/postscriptpeer-review


Although the chapters in this book are diverse, every chapter acknowledged one or more aspects of the ongoing threat of child abuse and its potential impacts, including: the response to disclosure; sibling sexual abuse; problematic sexual behaviours; the lack of access to medical care and mental health services; the role of technology; enhancing the success of forensic interviews; cultural considerations; the role of the wider community; politics; and funding. All authors also identified barriers to overcome in order to create a Child Advocacy Centre (CAC) that successfully provides a trauma-informed response to child abuse in its community.
