    The sexual assault experienced by a child or adolescent can have many consequences, the nature and intensity of which can vary from one young person to the next and seriously compromise his or her life trajectory. It is essential that professionals who work with young victims know the symptoms and are able to understand the consequences for these children and adolescents, according to the different profiles, in order to adequately assess their needs and guide subsequent interventions.

    Professionals who work with youth are key people. Children can disclose that they are victims of sexual violence to such professionals. How do you deal with a child's disclosure that they have been sexually assaulted and how do you best respond for the child's safety? By developing knowledge about sexual assault and the different contexts in which it can occur, professionals are called upon to develop the skills to intervene in a meaningful way with children, adolescents, and their families.
