Responding to a disclosure of child sexual abuse
Emerging Minds, Australia, October 2020
This fact sheet, for any adult who works with children, is an easily accessible reference on how to respond to a child who discloses sexual abuse. The guidance is relevant whether the disclosure is about abuse that is current or that occurred in the past. It is not intended to replace organisational or statutory policies, procedures, or frameworks that a practitioner may be working within.
