In the United States, child sexual abuse is reported almost 90,000 times a year, but the numbers of unreported incidents of abuse are far greater because so many of the children are afraid to tell anyone what has happened, according to the 2000 Bureau of Justice Statistics. Dr. Lane Fischer, faculty member in the Department of Counseling Psychology and Special Education in the McKay School, and his Affinity research team are researching ways to prevent sex offenders from working with children in schools.
