Working Towards Solving an Epidemic : Child Sex AbuseApril 26, 2012
Child abuse occurs in epidemic proportions nationwide and across the globe. In the U.S. alone, one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before their eighteenth birthdays, according to Darkness to Light,, a national child sexual abuse prevention organization.
Our response as a country depends on
Reporting suspected or known abuse is a must if we are to protect our children. Child sexual abuse reports should be made to the state’s child protective services agency, the police or both. Research on disclosure rates tell us that less than a third of incidents/cases are disclosed or identified, and even fewer are reported. And false reports of child sexual abuse made by children are rare.
Further, there are a lot of deeply entrenched myths about child sexual abuse that are linked to harmful outcomes. One of the most deep-rooted and erroneous beliefs is that strangers pose the most danger to our children. One powerful myth is that pedophiles look and act creepy. The fact is people who abuse children look like everyday people: our relatives, our teachers, our coaches, our friends. The predators typically go out of their way to appear trustworthy and to gain the confidence of unsuspecting children and adults.
The national dialogue that Penn State has sparked mustn’t stop now. As a nation, as a community,we simply must continue to talk about the ever present danger of Child sexual abuse, both with our children and with other adults.

FlashbacksApril 20, 2012
The Following is posted from http://www.snapnetwork.org. SNAP Offers great resources for those dealing with Abuse.
Flashbacks are normal
Vietnam vets have normalized this experience and have coined the term Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
Even the diagnostic category book for psychiatry defines Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome as the normal experience of experiencing an event that is outside the range of normal human experience. Flashbacks feel crazy because the little one doesn’t know that there is an adult survivor available to help.
