Survivor perspectives on institutional use of Child Sexual Abuse Material

This website contains information for victims and survivors of child sexual abuse and exploitation, who are interested in participating in the Survivor Perspectives on Institutional use of Child Sexual Abuse Material research project conducted by the AiLECS lab at Monash University, and Bravehearts Foundation.

Information on this website is intended for potential research participants and is not intended for victims and survivors generally. If you are seeking general information on child sexual abuse and exploitation, please visit the Bravehearts Foundation.

This research project involves hearing from victims and survivors of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) via an anonymous survey and/or a personal interview. We are asking for your views about how CSAM is (re)used by organisations such as police agencies, courts, and research institutions for the purpose of countering crimes against children. If you have any questions about the project, please contact the research team.

Child sexual abuse is a challenging issue. We recognise that some of the information on this website might be triggering and bring up strong feelings and thoughts for you. Please take care of yourself and ask for help if you need it. You can visit our Support Services page if you would like to speak to someone for support.
