Author(s): Dr. Virendra Pratap Yadav and Aanchal Thakur

Abstract: Child Sexual Abuse is a pervasive issue in today’s world that not only has deadly short-term effects but also long-lasting ones that can not only damage the victim(s) but also their offspring and loved ones. The term ‘Child Sexual Abuse’ refers to a wide array of acts, behaviors, and motions perpetrated against a child or children. The CSA, have to endure life-long and life-altering consequences often lead to damaging changes in one’s psyche, behavioral responses, physical temperament, and cognitive pathways. When it comes to emotional and psychological effects in the aftermath, the list is long. Major depression, suicide, social anxiety, and rates of conduct disorder, powerlessness, loss of control, issues with sexual intimacy, and romantic relationships in adulthood often occur as a result in some cases. Victims often have an increase in chronic anxiety, tension, hopelessness, isolation, worthlessness, and PTSD in the aftermath. An increase in literacy, betterment of sex education programs, better knowledge of prevention and safety strategies, and higher awareness about CSA should be inculcated as an awareness program. Intervention programs and education regarding the CSA should be provided to every adult and child, and stronger repercussions for those who have already or could potentially engage in CSA should be enacted.
