Responding to sexual assault – children and young people
Any behaviour of a sexual nature that makes a child or young person feel uncomfortable, frightened, threatened or intimidated is not OK.
For parents and carers, it can be challenging and overwhelming to learn that their child has experienced sexual assault and it can be difficult for them to know what to say and how to respond to their child.
To support parents and carers after their child’s disclosure of sexual assault, we have developed a trauma-informed resource – Responding to Sexual Assault: Children and Young People.
This video highlights ways parents/carers can support their child after disclosure of sexual assault.
