In general terms, sexual abuse indicates an undesired sexual encounter. Often times, but not always, the victim may be a child or teen. It may involve any of the following:
People that are less able to protect themselves against their abuser are often targets. This misuse of power may involve a victim that is smaller in size to the abuser, such as a child, teen, woman, handicapped person, or smaller-framed person. Other roles of authority such as a teacher, older family member, boss, or religious leader may make their victim feel obligated to accept sexual abuse.
After a person is sexually abused, their suffering may continue for years or even forever after the events come to a stop. There may be physical injuries involved, but the true pain is so much more than that. Mental issues regarding their self-worth, trusting others, and sexual health can occur.
If an adult notices signs of sexual abuse, such as the above-mentioned effects, it is their duty to take actions in protecting the victim. This is especially true when the victim is a child.
