Group A/B/C: Intra-familial Child Sexual Abuse
3rd February 2021
10:00 – 16:00
Child Sexual Abuse
Aim of the course
“As a society, we are far too reluctant to talk about sex abuse within the family home. It’s much easier to think of abuse happening elsewhere, to other people. Prevention is the best form of protection. If we are to deal with incest or other abuse involving families or family friends, we must talk openly and honestly about the signs and symptoms – to protect children and to stop abusers in their tracks.”
Amanda Spielman, Ofsted Chief Inspector
