Although many professionals who work in SA/DV services are aware of the possibility of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) in the histories of their adult clients, it can still be a challenge to know how to react to such a disclosure. This webinar will discuss the prevalence of CSA and its impact on adult survivors, how survivors are likely to disclose their CSA trauma, and practical things for advocates to say and do to provide support, assistance and referrals for services.
