Reporting on child sexual abuse – guidance for media and victims and survivors – now available
We commissioned the University of Canberra News and Media Research Centre to develop evidence‑based guidance for media professionals who are reporting on child sexual abuse, and for victims and survivors who are engaging with the media.
The key aim of these resources is to promote reporting that raises community awareness of child sexual abuse, reduces stigma, and empowers victims and survivors when they share their personal experiences with the media.
The guidance for media is accompanied by quick reference resources that provide practical guidance to editors and sub‑editors, court reporters, and about appropriate language and terminology to use.
