dc.description.abstract Rates of sexual violence against youth aged 12-18 are very high, and the survivor1 typically knows the person who committed the offense (Finkelhor, Shattuck, Turner, & Hamby, 2014; Finkelhor, Turner, Ormond, Hamby, & Kracke, 2009). Research suggests that teens who are survivors of sexual assault are at greater risk of being re-victimized in the future, compared to other adolescents who have not been sexually assaulted (Black et al., 2011; Lalor & McElvaney, 2010). Facing violence during this already complex time brings unique issues and challenges that advocates must be prepared to face. Advocates have a unique position to help young people during many stages of the healing process. This manual is designed to help advocates and other helping professionals navigate the sometimes muddy waters of working with young people. Though factors such as mandated reporting and confidentiality may be seen as barriers to working with teens, they are simply aspects of working with this age group. Youth, as illustrated by the statistics above, may experience sexual violence at the highest rates of any age group. This manual is designed to help those providing services to survivors of sexual violence serve teens using a trauma-informed approach. [CVRL Note: this guide includes an infographic on page 5 that summarizes statistics about teen sexual violence. Section 6 includes an annotated bibliography on research about sexual violence and teens.] (Author Text) en_US
