Library of Resources

We know that lack of information is a key barrier in taking a step to prevent child sexual abuse. That's why we've also made available a searchable database of the resources used by our Helpline staff as an additional tool for understanding child sexual abuse and taking actions to prevent it. While we carefully review each resource, inclusion in this library does not mean that we endorse or recommend the resource. Please review any resource carefully for relevance to your own personal situation. 

To find resources, enter the title, a portion of the title or any key word to bring up all relevant resources.

Please note that we are always happy to learn of a new resource for sexual abuse prevention and invite anyone to forward resources to us for review.
