5. Safe Environment Updates
One of the best ways we can help children recover from abuse is to listen to them when they disclose sexual abuse to us, to believe them, and to take action by making a report to the authorities. However, it can take time for a child to disclose if they are being abused, and it is often done in stages that we might miss if we aren't paying attention.
