Description:

This paper defines childhood sexual abuse, delves into its psychological frameworks and discusses how childhood sexual abuse can affect development. It examines several factors that have skewed the social view of child sexual abuse including the focus on gender, retrospective accounts of child sexual abuse and a lack of focus on child sexual abuse education and prevention. The paper asserts that society's misconceptions must be addressed before progress child sexual abuse can be effectively treated and prevented.

From the Paper:

"Childhood sexual trauma and sexual violence cuts across all lines of gender, national origin, language, religion, age, ethnicity, disability, and sexual orientation. In fact, according to the latest U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) 2000 Child Abuse and Neglect National Statistics Study that is conducted through the Administration for Children and Families National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) there has been a small one-year increase in confirmed reports of child maltreatment."
