What is Sibling Sexual abuse?
Sibling Sexual abuse is an exploitation of power over a less powerful sibling. Sibling is a term that includes all children who grow up together in the same family albeit foster, adopted or step children. Sibling abuse is sexual contact between siblings who are of different age, strength, size and development stages.
SSA or Sibling sexual abuse is not widely or openly discussed, during my research I have noticed that in the UK there are not many articles or charities dedicated to ssa even though it is thought to be more prolific than people are aware of, hence carrying such great stigma. This doesn't just end in childhood, it carries through into adult life and can cause the victim psychological health issues for many years to follow.
