The Influence of the Family Preservation Model on Child Sexual Abuse Intervention Strategies: Changes in Child Welfare Worker Tasks
The article discusses the influence of the traditional child sexual abuse intervention methods on child sexual abuse intervention strategies. The traditional family preservation model can be problematic, especially in instances of intrafamilial offenses. The author looks into the benefits of alternative strategies in use and the adaptations that child welfare workers, social workers and other professionals have made to enhance intervention effectiveness. There are several reasons which make traditional prosecutions of child sexual abuse offenders problematic. The reasons include difficulty in obtaining convictions and short term of sentences to such offenders.
