Storyboard Text

  • Victim
  • Maltreatment
  • Short-term impacts. 
  • Children growing up in low socioeconomic households are at greater risk for intra-familial child sexual abuse. Ten-year-old, Drew, grew up in a poor single-parent household. (5)
  • Long-term impacts.
  • On most weekends, Drew stayed at his Uncle's house for the day. He was sexually abused on several occasions, and threatened into silence. He kept quiet, but the abuse affected him deeply. (4)
  • Offending behaviour
  • Drew struggled in school. His behaviour was marked by impulsivity, depression, mood instability, poor concentration, and increased fighting with peers and teachers. (2)
  • Treatment.
  • Drew's problems intensified during adolescence. He began exhibiting signs of posttraumatic stress, depression, and impulsive and aggressive behaviour. His mother could no longer handle him, and kicked him out of the house. (3)
  • Drew's behaviour continued to worsen. He began abusing drugs and alcohol, associating with antisocial peers, and engaging in criminal conduct (drugs and property crime). Conduct that later resulted in his incarceration. (1)
  • For Drew to experience true healing, it is imperative that he receive drug and alcohol treatment, cognitive behavioural therapy (PTSD), and psychiatric support for his child trauma. He should also be offered a chance at rehabilitation and reintegration into society. (6)
