The reaction of the person a child tells is an important factor in their recovery. Many families across America have had their children removed for failing to react appropriately when faced with the information that their child is a victim of sexual abuse. Most have stated that they were in shock, not sure what to do because of the lack of books about this topic.
Responding to a Sexual Abuse Outcry was created to help families cope with this experience. There are over forty-two million survivors of sexual abuse in America. Research has shown children of sexual abuse survivors are at a higher risk of becoming victims themselves. TCaware.org’s goal, by publishing this resource, is to break the cycle of abuse and end the epidemic of sexual abuse. Every parent, childcare professional, law enforcement staff, caseworker, teacher, and religious/crisis intervention organization can benefit from the information in this book.
