Quadara, A., Nagy, V., Higgins, D. & Siegel, N. (2015). Conceptualising the prevention of child sexual abuse. 1-74. Australia: Australian Institute of Family Studies.
Significant numbers of Australian children have experienced neglect, emotional abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse. The adverse, long-term consequences of these experiences are well demonstrated in the research literature and recognised by the policy and practice communities. This report: • identifies the conceptual, policy and practice challenges that the prevention of child sexual abuse presents • presents a conceptual mapping of dynamics associated with child sexual abuse and sexual exploitation • outlines key directions that could be taken to strengthen prevention strategies. The report is divided into two sections: • Part A: Background literature • Part B: Child sexual abuse: Current issues and future directions
