Seeing the signs of child abuse

“Child abusers are not people who sit in a dirty park somewhere” -clinical social workers. The sexual abuse of a child often happens over a long time before signs that a child is experiencing trauma are picked up. In this focus on child abuse, we find out what behavioural patterns to watch out for in a child to realise if they have been abused. We also hear what impact sexual abuse has on children, what help is at hand and what encourages this abuse on our children to flourish.
