School-Aged Victims of Sexual Abuse: Implications for Educators.
Wishon, Phillip M.
Each year in the United States, thousands of school-aged children become involved in sexual activities arranged by adults for purposes of pleasure and profit. Nationwide, annual profits from the child pornography industry and from female and male child prostitution are in the tens of millions of dollars. Heretofore, the majority of child-care-givers have been largely unmindful of the problems of childhood sexual exploitation and its educational and sociological concomitants. An overview of the problem of child sexual abuse is provided. Measures are recommended which can assist professional educators in responding to the needs of child victims and to the concerns of high-risk individuals. (Author)
