Child Sexual Abuse: Analysis and Intervention

Edited by Dr. Danielle Reynald, Dr. Ella Cockbain

We are delighted to have the chance to bring together leading researchers and practitioners worldwide for Crime Science’s first special edition on child sexual abuse. Importantly, we welcomed here contributions from both academics and practitioners (either separately or through co-authored papers). We envisage that this will help promote interactions between these parties and bridge the gap between research and practice in the area of child sexual abuse and its prevention. This special issue is designed to increase awareness of and interest in theoretical, empirical and practical developments in child protection and the prevention of child sexual abuse.
