Preventing and treating children affected by sexual abuse

The Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Sexual Abuse (CPTCSA) has been working for more than 20 years in the Philippines to provide therapeutic support to young perpetrators and survivors of child sexual abuse, and to train foster care providers for children who have been sexually abused.

Parents also attend weekly clinics at CPTCSA’s principle shelter and treatment centre in Manila to cement their involvement in the recovery and reintegration process.

Approach

As part of its strong commitment to evidence-based intervention, CPTCSA has documented its specialist therapeutic support model and trains social workers in its replication.

Its school-based prevention work currently reaches well over 500 schools through a faith-based curriculum, and, in a notable advocacy achievement, has secured government agreement to add a child sexual abuse prevention programme to the national curriculum.

CPTCSA also annually publishes its highly respected Philippines Journal of Child Sexual Abuse.
