Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a silent epidemic that takes place throughout the United States, creating social havoc for the children, adult survivors, and society. Even one single episode of child sexual abuse can scar the person for the rest of his/her life. It can be prevented if we can focus on the challenges, and that is the subject of this workshop. The presentation elaborates on the numerous challenges involved in dealing with several inconsistencies while trying to work effectively with the various “systems”. The workshop emphasizes the fact that prevention means doing something “before it actually happens” and it discusses the existing challenges inherent in many of our systems such as law enforcement, legal and court systems, correction system, child protection system, etc, while working in a preventive mode. This is an area that requires immediate attention if we are truly focused on intervention and prevention of child sexual abuse. Looking through the eyes of an ordinary citizen, this presentation brings forward the inconsistencies associated with our systems that must be improved so we can be more effective in intervention and prevention. This unique perspective provides an insight that would be extremely helpful for advocates and service providers since it’s not often that an ordinary citizen intervenes to prevent child sexual abuse.
