Child Abuse Sexual Assault

Preventing Sexual Violence in Children

I had a colleague ask me for some resources for training healthcare providers on child sexual abuse, and while this wasn’t a resource specific to her needs, it made me realize I’ve never posted it before. The American Academy of Pediatrics published a web-based sexual violence prevention program last year. There’s quite a bit of information contained in it, so it’s probably worth trolling through the different sections. They break it up into age groups, too, so you can review based on interest (e.g. if you only see adolescents and adults in your practice, there are tabs for younger and older adolescents).

For those of you interested, you can purchase the CD-ROM of the program, which also contains 4 video clips and provides 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
