Abstract:


Sexual abuse of children by teachers represents a critical problem. In fact, it has been suggested that approximately 9.6% of children in grades 8 to 11 report unwanted teacher sexual misconduct, with more then 3.5 million students reporting inappropriate sexual contact with educators. Within schools, then, the issues are profound and the implications for counseling both children and teachers significant. This paper examines the issues.
