This guidebook sheds light, knowledge and truth on the process of sexual child abuse cases.

Lack of wisdom and an over emotional reaction leads to closed doors. Through the knowledge that the Author has acquired she leads you through the maze of red tape one finds themselves tied up in. Through years of experience and research, this book has been compiled to guide you out of the maze one finds themselves in during these cases. This informative guide book serves to protect you and your child/ren.

The light this guidebook shines is to serve in creating more awareness on this dark topic of reality, from recognising sexual child abuse, to reporting cases, to the legal processes, to forgiveness and to the healing journey.

A note from our venue sponsor, Foxwood House and Theatre:

Foxwood House and Theatre has been creating greater awareness of sexual abuse of children through Jan Groenewald’s play Die Pruimboom, which has been staged at the Edinburg arts festival as Plum Tree.

We are hosting the launch of a book to give parents’ of children – and sadly sometimes children who have been abused – practical advice and guidance how to cope.

The publishers are planning to distribute the book as a free guide to hospitals, police stations, clinics and townships all over South Africa.

If you would like to know more, please contact the author, Samantha Jo, who has had to walk to corridors of the legal system and has compiled the book based on her own research, aimed at parents and their children.
