Key messages from research on harmful sexual behaviour in online contexts

We’ve launched the second of our new papers to help professionals understand and respond to child sexual abuse online – Key messages from research on harmful sexual behaviour in online contexts.

Sexual behaviour by under-18s that may be harmful towards themselves or another child, young person or adult, is typically called harmful sexual behaviour – this includes within online contexts.
