Child sexual abuse (CSA) and other Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are occurring in pandemic proportions. CSA includes actions from voyeurism to rape. Other ACEs include physical and emotional abuse and other traumatic circumstances for children. CSA usually happens over an extended period of time by someone close to the child. There are at least 42 million adult CSA survivors in the U.S. alone. Given the often grave physical, psychological and social trauma and outcomes of CSA and other ACEs, they affect not only individuals but societies.
