Sexual Abuse

Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse or violence is a significant problem in the United States. Sexual violence refers to any sexual activity where consent is not obtained or not given freely. Although sexual abuse affects men and women, the fact is that most victims are female. The perpetrator of such violence is often someone known to the victim. http://www.cdc.gov/ViolencePrevention/sexualviolence/index.html The CDC divides sexual violence into the following types: (1) Completed or attempted forced penetration of a victim;(2) Completed or attempted alcohol/drug-facilitated penetration of a victim; (3) Completed or attempted forced acts in which a victim is made to penetrate a perpetrator or someone else; (4) Completed or attempted alcohol/drug-facilitated acts in which a victim is made to penetrate a perpetrator or someone else; (5) Non-physically forced penetration which occurs after a person is pressured verbally or through intimidation or misuse of authority to consent or acquiesce; (6) Unwanted sexual contact; and (7) Non-contact unwanted sexual experiences. It is important to seek help and treatment if you experience any type of sexual abuse. http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/sexualviolence/definitions.html
