It Really Didn’t Happen - Recantations of Child Sexual Abuse

(2 Ratings)

About Course

In the past decade, increased attention and debate has focused on the prevalence of recantation among children alleging sexual abuse. At some point or another, every professional working in the child maltreatment field will be faced with a recanting child victim. Recantations occur at various stages during the investigation or prosecution of child abuse cases. Some have proposed that recantations of “true” disclosures of sexual abuse are rare while others suggest that recantation is more common and is affected by children’s vulnerability to adult familial influences.

This workshop will explore the prevalence of recantations and variables found to predict recantation in child sexual abuse cases. Methods to improve the initial report of sexual abuse and possible system interventions for vulnerable children will be discussed.

A certificate of completion is NOT issued for viewing a webinar. Webinars are offered as a knowledge resource and enrichment tool and do not have knowledge checks.
