About the Workshop
The two-day workshop will largely focus on the issues related to child sexual abuse and progress made for the protection and implementation of laws related to them.
Child sexual abuse
The right of children to physical and personal integrity is related to the fundamental right to life and personal and social development.
All forms of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse against children may have serious negative short-term and long-term physical, mental, and reproductive health consequences. These include physical injury, sexually transmitted infections, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, unplanned pregnancy, and in some cases death. Good treatment will produce positive effects on the physical and mental development of children. To ensure a healthy society, it is of critical importance that children who have been subjected to abuse and neglect are given the appropriate support in treatment and dignified rehabilitation.
In the span of two days, the workshop would:
Discuss the national and global overview of child sexual abuse and different legislations and policies available on the same in India.
The workshop shall also address the issues related to mental health and development of such children and shall also include the recovery and rehabilitation of Child Victims of Sexual Abuse.
