Gendered Responses to Child Sexual Abuse - Part 2

This session builds on April's JUMPP Session. We will review the handouts  shared at the previous meeting.
Handout will be available for new attendees as well.
Child sexual abuse is a complicated and challenging issue for practitioners, particularly so when the abuse is displayed by a child towards another child. When we add considerations of gender, the complexities are compounded further. However, a dearth of research regarding girls displaying harmful sexual behaviour coupled with limited research into sexual harm experienced by boys means that our understanding of the role of gender in child sexual abuse lacks sophistication and remains ridden with stereotypically gendered attitudes to societal norms and expectations in relation to child development. This session will consider the role of gender and its impact upon our understanding and responses to child sexual abuse. It will consider the findings from Girls Talk, a 3-year research project undertaken by Barnardo’s that gave focus to the topic of girls and young women who display harmful sexual behaviour. The session will also consider how learning from this research influenced service development and further research undertaken by Barnardo’s, BOYS 2, that gave focus to the topic of boys and young men impacted by child sexual abuse and exploitation.
