Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a pervasive societal problem. Despite the high probability that students will encounter clients with a CSA history, most programs provide minimal to no training in this area. This session shares the results of survey research which investigated students' perceived readiness to provide counseling to victims of CSA. This research highlights gaps that exist in their preparation and provides suggestions for coursework and supervision to improve students' competence.
