Abstract

This article reviews research on family violence and sexual abuse of children in the 1980s.

The second section reviews the issue of the sexual abuse of children and examines the issues of defining sexual abuse, its prevalence, research on sexual offenders and risk factors, the impact of sexual abuse, and studies of the effectiveness of prevention efforts.
