This literature review examines research on prevention efforts targeting parents to support or reject three hypotheses: (1) Prevention efforts intended for parents increase their knowledge of CSA, (2) such prevention efforts motivate parents to educate and protect children from CSA, and (3) such efforts result in lower rates of child sexual victimization.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This review is a part of the <a href="http://www.nsvrc.org/publications/child-sexual-abuse-prevention-information-packet">Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Information Packet</a>.
