Guiding Principles for Social Workers Working with Others to Identify and Protect Children From all Forms of Sexual Abuse
This policy statement has been drafted in response to the following resolution of the General Meeting 2012:
That this General Meeting:
Acknowledges that in every sector of society in all corners of the world significant numbers of children are sexually abused, that the majority of such children go unrecognised as they are too frightened, unable, not listened to or prevented from revealing what is happening to them and that such an experience is likely to affect their health and well-being for the rest of their lives.
