This document is concerned with the child psychiatrist's role and management of children who have been sexually abused. It has been produced in response to calls for clarification and guidelines on those aspects of child sexual abuse (CSA) which have caused debate or concern with the sub-specialty. Hence, it is not intended as a comprehensive review of all aspects of CSA. The present document is intended to provide a single source of information specifically orientated towards child psychiatrists.
