“Sexual abuse is the most shaming of all abuse. It takes less sexual abuse than any other form of abuse to induce shame. Sexual abuse is widespread. It is estimated that there are currently some 60 million victims of sexual violence.” — John Bradshaw

Signs and Symptoms of Sexual Abuse describes the various kinds of sexual abuse: physical, overt, covert (body violation and verbal abuse) and emotional (getting the needs met at the child’s expense).
