Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse of children is a harsh fact of life in our society, and is more common than most people realize. Child sexual abuse is any sexual act  performed with a child by an adult or an older child.  Some surveys indicate that 1 out of 5 adult women and 1 out of 10 adult men have been sexually abused in childhood. Not all sexual abuse involves physical touching, and these instances can be more difficult to detect.
