Central Library | Mon 16 March, 2020

Free To Be Children: Preventing child sexual abuse in Aotearoa New Zealand (Massey University Press) edited by Robyn Salisbury.

Launched by Carla na Nagara Director of the Suicide Prevention Office.

Childhood in Aotearoa New Zealand ought to be carefree and safe. But too often children are robbed of those rights by adults who sexually abuse them. Clinical psychologist Robyn Salisbury shines a light into the darkness of that abuse.

Offering a blueprint for change, Salisbury outlines how we, as a nation, might combat child sexual abuse in Aotearoa.
