Sexual abuse is a serious social issue with adverse psychosocial consequences in the person who is victimized. High prevalence rate of abuse in both children and adults, no matter female or male, indicate that anyone can be a victim of this hazard. The manifestation of mental-health outcomes is diverse in nature and different across individuals and is determined by complex array of factors. This calls for the application of intervention techniques that are well-established by empirical research to be effective among victims of sexual abuse.
