Unfortunately, research tells us that no group of people in society are exempt from experiencing child abuse. We know that child abuse occurs across all cultures and socioeconomic classes, and it affects both males and females of all ages (from 0 to 18 years). Recent statistics suggest the following breakdown of substantiated child abuses by type;

  • Emotional (36%)
  • Neglect (31%)
  • Physical (21%)
  • Sexual (12%)
We also know that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will experience child sexual abuse by the time they are 18 years of age. It is rare for a child to experience only one form of abuse, with most children experiencing multiple forms. It is an unsettling fact that 85% of all maltreatment incidences against children are committed by someone from their natural families.
