Sexual Abuse and Child Molestation Cases
Sexual abuse by trusted individuals, such as business owners, clergy, coaches, music instructors, medical providers, psychiatrists, physicians, policemen, teachers, trainers, sexual predators or individuals in a position of power over the victims, causes physical and emotional pain to violated victims. These breaches of trust often leave traumatic lifelong emotional scars. Many sexual abuse victims require long periods of psychiatric and psychological therapy as well as inpatient hospitalization in mental facilities to help them deal with the emotional scars that sexual abuse can leave.
Scope of The Problem
The scope of the problem of sexual abuse is huge. Some statistics indicate that more than 30 percent of all girls and 20 percent of all boys will be victims of sexual abuse by the time they are 18 years old. Sexual assault includes any and all inappropriate touching including forced kissing, forced penetration of any kind, and rape by threat or otherwise. Sexual abuse, rape and sexual assault are serious physical injuries and can cause a plethora of serious and intractable physical and emotional harms, including conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), physical injury, transmission of sexual diseases and many forms and manifestations of psychiatric illness such as anxiety, depression, paranoia, helplessness, shame and fear of relationships or intimacy.
Victims React in Many Different Ways
Decades of social science and psychology research has shown that there is no standard way sexual assault victims react to having been abused. Some immediately go to the police or hospital. Some take years to recognize what has happened. Compassionate and educated people shouldn’t judge or blame survivors who don’t follow stereotypes about how rape victims “should” act; they should look at each situation individually to understand what happened, why it happened, how it happened, and how it could have been prevented as well as what can be done to compensate the victim and punish the wrongdoer.
