Impact of child sexual abuse.

shriram | 4th February 2014 | Social Development

    53% of children in India face some form of child sexual abuse. Child sexual abuse is a form of child abuse in which an adult or older adolescent uses a child for sexual stimulation. Child sexual abuse can occur in a variety of settings, including home, school, or work. Sexual abuse by a family member is a form of incest, and can result in more serious and long-term psychological trauma, especially in the case of parental incest. Child sexual abuse is one of the most pervasive social problems faced by this society. The effects of child sexual abuse can include depression, traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, complex post-traumatic stress disorder, propensity to further victimization in adulthood, and physical injury to the child, among other problems. It may include regressive behaviors, sleep disturbances, eating problems, behavior and/or performance problems at school, and non participation in school and social activities. The experience of sexual abuse for a child distorts her or his self­-concept, orientation to the world, and affective capabilities. the path to recovery from sexual abuse is completed with short-­term support and intervention. Studies show that other children, however, continue to re­-experience the trauma with symptoms of fear, anxiety, nightmares, phobias, clinging behavior, depression, suicidality, alcohol or drug abuse, self­-destructive behavior, and in vulnerability to future victimization. Child sexual abuse may cause infections and sexually transmitted diseases. Other children may have what is called "sleeper effects." They may experience no harm in the short run, but suffer serious problems later in life.
