I suspect that my child may have even sexually abused. But I am not sure. What can I do?

If you suspect that your child may have been sexually abused, you may wish to consider consulting a mental health professional, such as a counselor, therapist or social worker. Such a person can assist you and your family with ways in which to cope with your feelings about the abuse. Make certain that you seek a health professional who has a background in child development, child trauma and sexual abuse.

Speaking with a mental health professional who specializes in child sexual abuse can help you decide whether your child’s behavior is cause for concern. A specialist can direct you as to how to deal with your child’s challenges, and offer advice on how to communicate with your child. The specialist will likely perform a comprehensive assessment in order to find out how your child functions in all aspects of life.
