This webinar will be a dynamic, interactive, image-heavy presentation of common and not-so-common findings during pediatric sexual forensic exams. As many SANEs may not have the opportunity to see large numbers of children, the goal of this presentation is to increase confidence in performing these exams. Discussions will include evidence-based interpretation and documentation of findings.

Educational Objectives:

1. Review child sexual abuse prevalence and dynamics.

2. Increase knowledge about accurate diagnosis during child sexual assault exams, and appropriate categorization of the findings within the Joyce Adams Interpretation publication.

3. Gain tools for exam techniques that can help the examiner capture quality digital images.
