The problem of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) in Jamaica is intractable. Many reports and scholarly papers have created a body of work that has highlighted the cultural underpinnings of the practice and the ways in which victims are permanently traumatised. This prior work has led to the establishment of institutions to remove children from abusive situations and laws to deal with perpetrators. Yet, as this research report reveals, the problem still exists and is in need of greater national attention. Aptly titled, “It affects you for a lifetime!" Perspectives on Child Sexual Abuse in Jamaica, this research report adds unique insights to the existing store of knowledge. The team has done an excellent job in the research and writing of this important and useful report.
