Child Sexual Abuse (Level 3)

Course Title:
Child Sexual Abuse (Level 3)
Course Code:

Research in general populations consistently tells us that sexual abuse is a relatively common type of harm, affecting around 10 - 11% of people in childhood. Its impact on child and adult well-being can be pervasive and enduring. Despite its prevalence, sexual abuse is under-reported, under-represented in child protection populations, and there are significant barriers to children disclosing it to professionals.

Please note that if you are booking from Education Services or from outside the Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston there will be a booking fee of £120
