For instance, for this student, before reading this book, I would categorize this different types of abuse differently, from more severe to less severe, and perhaps giving less importance to those I viewed as less severe. But it is important to understand that for each of these victims, each abuse was very serious, very severe, and they should be treated equally. This book is also a great source of understanding for those who were perpetrators of abuse, especially against children, it will help them to understand the consequences of their actions, and how perhaps once act, have completely changed the life of a child. This book is also important to parents and those who work with children, when we, as adults understands the risks that children, adolescents and any person who is not able to protect themselves are facing, we hopefully can be more vigilant of children, women and any possible

Child Abuse Types of abuse can include but are not limited to physical, emotional and abuse through neglect. Abuse may be acute or involve a long-term pattern of behaviours and actions and often children are abused in more than one way. Children may be in need of protection where their basic needs are not being met, in a manner appropriate to their stage of development, and they will be at risk from avoidable acts or omission on the part of their parent(s), a carer, sibling(s) or other relative(s).

However, as a social worker, I can help someone shift their frame of mind and help develop their toolkit to tap into and better cope with their anxieties. My decision to pursue a career in social work is one that I hold dear to my well-being. It will not only make me a better person, but those around me will have someone they trust and believe in. My intent is to work with children and families that have experienced trauma such as abuse, have been sexually abused, and help those feel comfortable in their own skin.

By spreading awareness of what sexual child abuse is the causes and how it affects people should bring attention on how we can avoid emotional problems and best approach on how to deal sexual
