About The Study: The results of this national survey study of 2,600 individuals suggest that a considerable portion of youth have experienced online child sexual abuse. Professionals planning prevention and intervention strategies for online sexual abuse should understand that dynamics include diverse episodes that are often extensions of dating abuse, sexual bullying, and sexual harassment, not only events perpetrated by adult internet predators.
Authors: David Finkelhor, Ph.D., of the University of New Hampshire in Durham, is the corresponding author.
