Description

Child sexual abuse (CSA) is increasingly recognized in survivors as a connection to emotional or psychological, relational or social and sexual or physical difficulties later in life that range in severity (Chouliara, Karatzias, Scott-Brien, MacDonald, MacArthur & Frazer, 2012). The purpose of this literature review is to enhance school counselor’s general education of child sexual abuse counseling strategies by highlighting important guidelines on detecting, reporting, and utilizing different strategies such as: when to use them, what accommodations are made to fit the victim’s needs, how to strengthen efficacy, etc. The different strategies researched are trauma focused, person centered, solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy and play therapy. Data sources included in the review were chosen based on their significant findings, detailed description of therapy and date published. School counselors have a duty to not only be aware of this more prevalent abuse in current society, but to be well informed on the necessary elements to provide high quality counseling for each victim.
