Sexual Abuse Detection Through Drawing Workshop: E-learning Contribution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sexual abuse is a common worldwide phenomenon, with severe physical and mental consequences. Yet its detection remains challenging due to a variety of factors. Sexual abuse detection through drawing shows promising results for the detection of sexual abuse. This study aims to evaluate the contribution to practice of a sexual abuse detection through drawing workshop, and to compare online and face-to-face versions of this program in term of skills and knowledge. The results of the study show that the detection of sexual abuse through drawing was improved through both the online and face-to-face formats of the workshop. There was no difference between the two formats of the workshop. Long-term contributions to practice were moderate. There was a decline in skills and knowledge in the three-month follow-up reports, emphasizing the need for further practice. The study concludes with the advantages of the e-learning format to sexual abuse detection training
