Abuse – Prevention and treatment

Health Tips

Sex education should be a compulsory course in primary and secondary schools.

A child crying for help or whose behavior had suddenly changed needs to be listened to, not shouted down to “shut-up” but should be taken for medical assessment. Similarly, vaginal discharge, strange mouth sores, unexplained injuries, suddenly withdrawn child regardless of gender or an apprehensive child in presence of certain individual may indicate an unpleasant relationship going on.

A child who suddenly changes to start behaving in an adult manner may have been having advanced encounter beyond his or her age. Therefore, guardians and parents need a high index of suspicion to prevent further abuse.  Such a child may need to be removed from the focus of danger that she or he may be a place of safety.

Adult Abuse

For the adult, male or female, vigilance is the key to it all. Be vigilant against possible attack. Avoid being lured away into danger by greed for money and materials. Learn to say “No”. Avoid walking or being present in the lonely dark alley.

 

Treatment

Abuse in any form, not the least sexual abuse, doesn’t just go away. I have dealt with a few in recent times. It lingers. For their personal reasons, privacy or need to avoid relationship fractures or by reason of religious beliefs, some perpetrators of abuses may be “forgiven and forgotten” by the victims. This forgiveness does not absolve the architect of their legal guilt. If apprehended, the law should take its full course.

 

Individuals that may not be able to bear the consequences of sexual abuse need to see a qualified and competent medical doctor/psychiatrist and a psychologist to help deal with effects of sexual abuse. Medication and surgery may be called for.
