Without a doubt, this  The problem presents a series of challenges for clinical practice, whether in Social Work or in other professions at the end.  The clinical work in the face of sexual abuse requires a series of knowledge, both from the legal apparatus, as well as the protective social, family and community networks, which promote clinical methodologies that can stop the retraumatization of children in the face of said experience of violation, strengthening their family system, and the parental figures in charge of supporting and caring.
