Where the Boys Are: Investigating and Prosecuting Cases of CSA When the Victim is Male

Course Description

Most sexually abused boys will never make an outcry during childhood and, even if abuse is discovered, investigators and prosecutors will face barriers that impede their ability to protect these children. This workshop explores the research on the sexual abuse of boys and offers concrete suggestions for conducting forensic interviews with these children, investigating crimes against boys, and presenting these cases to a jury.

Learning Objectives

1. Understand the unique traumas experienced by boy victims of sexual abuse and how those traumas impact disclosure

2. Learn research supported strategies for addressing the medical, mental health, and spiritual needs of boy victims

3. Through a case study, attendees will learn concrete strategies for conducting forensic interviews, investigations and prosecutions involving boy victims of child sexual abuse
