Lev-Wiesel & First, 2018). Out of those who were brought to child investigations for possible sexual victimization, about 85% of those investigations ended in closing the case, either because of lack of collaborating evidence (forensic evidence, or no witness), or the alleged victimized child's inability to provide a coherent testimony as required by the judicial system (e.g., Easton, 2013). In our view, the papers presented in this issue illustrate further evidence of the devastating outcomes of CSA, and the multidimensional aspects of trauma recovery.They also show the intergenerational complexities of CSA, and the relationship of these to both reporting and recovery.
