Summary
Sexual abuse is a confronting yet often hidden crime in our society, leaving victims to often experience ongoing suffering and trauma, and many perpetrators unpunished by the law. This book looks at the extent, types and signs of sexual assault which can occur; the legal process involving the reporting and prosecution of sexual violence; how to reduce the risk of being exposed to sexual assault such as date rape and child sexual abuse; child sexual abuse and paedophile awareness; and helping survivors to cope with past abuse
