This Expert Evidence chapter focuses on the sexual abuse of children; however this also involves psychological and emotional abuse and often exploitation. The context in which sexual abuse occurs, the relationship of the child to the perpetrator and the response of the social environment to any disclosure of abuse are crucial factors in influencing the outcome for the child. These outcomes – both as a child and later as an adult – are described.
