Additional Information:
An investigation of child abuse and possible legal proceedings are stressful for child victims and their families.

As the criminal justice system was designed for adults, it can be a confusing, frightening and frustrating experience for a child and their family.

Professionals have expressed concern that a child may experience secondary trauma from the very process originally intended to be helpful and protective.
