Adult Victims of Childhood Abuse

The sexual abuse of children spans all races, ages, ethnic groups and economic backgrounds. Sexual abuse means any kind of unwanted or inappropriate sexual behavior with a child, whether or not there is actual physical contact. Tragically, this kind of abuse is not rare: studies estimate that one in four girls and one in seven boys are sexually abused as children.

This brochure discusses the feelings of victims, common reactions to victimization and how they can find help.
