In the 1980s the extent of child sexual abuse became widely recognized. Most doctors were ill equipped to deal with this 'new' form of abuse. Unlike physical abuse most sexually abused children have no physical signs. The close cooperation between professionals is a legacy of the experience of the last decade.
