Resources

For Community-Based Interventions to Child Sexual Abuse

All of these resources have content that is specific to child sexual abuse. While some of the resources listed below detail interventions that work hand-in-hand with the state (and are thus not in line with transformative justice principles), all of them present useful case studies that can be drawn from in order to inform transformative justice approaches.
