How Child Sexual Abusers Conceal their Actions to Infiltrate the Community

Child sexual abusers like to choose lifestyles (e.g., marrying into families with children, etc.) that will provide them access to children in order to expand their opportunities to molest (Transforming Trauma: A Guide to Understanding and Treating Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. Salter, A.C. 1995; Sexual Abuse: Counseling Issues and Concerns. Halliday, L. 1985)

Child sexual abusers’ frequent involvement with children and their families enables the molesters to successfully create a positive image within the community and earn the support of others, thereby increasing their chances of sexual abuse.
