Community care has published an article by a practice improvement advisor at the Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse about what social workers can do improve identification and encourage disclosure of sexual abuse amongst boys.

Recommendations include: when working with males who display challenging behaviour, always look to understand the cause of the behaviour and not just address the behaviour itself; design a process to gain feedback from young males and include them in innovations and service design; and use supervision to practise receiving disclosures and asking gender-sensitive questions about child sexual abuse.
