Abstract

Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a pervasive and underreported issue (Stoltenborgh et al. 2015). It can impact on every area of a child’s development including short and long term emotional, cognitive, behavioural, physical, social and sexual difficulties (NSPCC, 2015). Given the disparity between the prevalence of CSA, underreported incidents and low rate of successful conviction (Lepper, 2012) more effective methods of assessment are required.
