What is sexual abuse?
“Sexual abuse is any form of nonconsensual sexual contact. To be consensual it has to be capable, informed and unforced consent. This form of assault and abuse can happen to men or women of any age. Childhood sexual abuse is any contact or interaction (visual, verbal, or psychological) between a child or adolescent and an adult when the child or adolescent is being used for the sexual stimulation of the perpetrator or any other person. Sexual abuse may be committed by a person under the age of 18 when that person is either significantly older than the victim or in a position of power/control over the child/adolescent.” - Dr. Dan Allendar, author of The Wounded Heart
