In Practice: Advocacy with Children

The purpose of this resource is to discuss some of the considerations that are unique to advocacy with children between the ages of five-12 and provide concrete examples of what child advocacy may look like in practice. Even children as young as five or six can benefit from working directly with their advocate. When providing advocacy in child sexual abuse cases, a separate advocate can promote the child’s well-being by providing information and support to the non-offending parent or caregiver.
