2 of 3 mental health experts in Mumbai lack skills to counsel sexually abused children- Study

Two out of every three mental health professionals in Mumbai — a city ranks second in number of crimes against children (3,400 cases) in India — feel they lack skills to tackle child sexual abuse (CSA) cases. Experts said this is owing to lack of training related to trauma-focused counselling. The finding was drawn from a study conducted by The Foundation, a non-government organisation, run by former rugby captain of India and Bollywood actor Rahul Bose. The study is supported by UNICEF. It reveals that 61 Mental Health Professionals (MHPs), who were part of the survey, shed light on achievements and struggles of both the survivor and the response systems of child sexual abuse cases. Nearly 77% — three in four — experts said it was emotionally overwhelming to handle these cases.
