Exploring the relationship between neglect and harmful sexual behaviours in children and young people : Evidence Scope 3.

Hackett, S. (2016) 'Exploring the relationship between neglect and harmful sexual behaviours in children and young people : Evidence Scope 3.', Project Report. Research in Practice and National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), Dartington.

Abstract

This evidence scope explores the potential associations between a background of child neglect and children and young people who display harmful sexual behaviours (HSB). For the purpose of this scope, HSB is defined as: Sexual behaviours expressed by children and young people under the age of 18 years old that are developmentally inappropriate, may be harmful towards self or others and/ or be abusive towards another child, young person or adult. (Hackett, Holmes and Branigan, 2015) This scope is the third of three linked evidence scopes commissioned by Action for Children and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) with Research in Practice. > Scope 1 considers the potential relationship between neglect and child sexual exploitation (CSE) (Hanson, 2016). > Scope 2 explores the relationship between neglect and adult-perpetrated intra-familial child sexual abuse (IFCSA) (Allnock, 2016). So while the first two scopes deal primarily with children and young people as victims of differing types of sexual abuse, this review is specifically concerned with the challenging area of children and young people who harm or victimise others as a consequence of their sexual behaviours.
