Child Sexual Abuse: Prevalence and Effects

Top of page

Statistics on the prevalence of child sexual abuse, both in Canada from the Badgley Commission and in the United States from the work of Diana Russell, present a picture that people find hard to accept. This tape examines the reasons behind such high figures and looks at the effects the abuse has on children. David Finkelhor discusses the sexual traumatisation of abused children and Lucy Berliner talks about treatment strategies and setting realistic treatment targets. Recorded at the Conference on Counselling the Sexual Abuse Survivor, Winnipeg, Feb. 1985.
