Abstract

Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 11, No. 4,1999 Commentary Comprehensiveness and Collaboration: Key Ingredients of an Effective Public Health Approach to Preventing Child Sexual Abuse Sandy K. Wurtele1 When we wrote our book, Preventing Child Sexual Abuse: Sharing the Re- sponsibility (Wurtele & Miller-Perrin, 1992), our goal was to encourage divergent thinking regarding the appropriate scope and nature of prevention approaches. At that time, we advocated an expansion from a primary focus on child victimization prevention programs toward targeting multiple groups with a variety of prevention strategies. Our thesis was that many groups can and should play a role in com- bating child sexual abuse (CSA). It is therefore exciting to read this collection of papers and see many of these possibilities come to fruition and also to see how this talented group of writers envisages new ways to improve practices in the pre- vention field. I welcome their contributions to this special issue of Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment and to the field as a whole. One theme of these papers is to take a public health approach to the problem of CSA. Intervening after the fact will never protect children
