Protection against sexual abuse of juveniles in residential care

The etiology of re-victimisation and perpetration after sexual abuse (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In this literature review, the focus is on children who have been sexually abused in childhood and are at risk of being re-victimized or becoming possible perpetrators of sexual offences themselves when placed in an institution. The current literature review aims at providing information about modifiable factors so that residential institutions are able to adequately respond in a way which avoids renewed victimization and perpetration. In conjunction with a literature study and meeting with professionals in the field of child welfare, the question addressed was whether boys and girls who have been sexually abused should be treated jointly or separately.
