All tagged Incest

Incest is usually a family matter, with the victims sexually abused by a family member or person close to the family. It is one of the most common, and least reported crime.

Victims of incest often shoulder the blame, shame and trauma for years, maybe decades, after the assault. Reporting it, and finding treatment both for the victim and the offender are very important. Reporting it is the only way in which we can break the cycle so prevalent in our culture.
