Child Sexual Abuse Therapy Service
The Child Sexual Abuse Therapy Service aims to reduce the harmful effects of sexual abuse on children. The service assists children to manage trauma, and educates them about social skills and strategies that enable them to be safe and establish non-abusive relationships. It teaches parents to recognise the symptoms and effects of sexual abuse against children, and how to provide support for their child’s healing.
