Sibling Sexual Abuse: A Knowledge and Practice Overview Report – Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse (January 2021)

Summary: Link to the Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse report concerned with sibling sexual abuse.

 


Description: 
The Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse have published their report sibling sexual abuse: A knowledge and practice overview. The report is primarily written for social workers and other professionals involved in safeguarding children, but it may be of interest to a wider group who find themselves working with families affected by sibling sexual abuse (e.g. teachers, mental health practitioners, foster carers, residential care workers). As sibling sexual abuse is rarely disclosed in childhood, this paper may be of use also to professionals working with adult survivors of sexual abuse.
