This study investigated characteristics of the context of child sexual abuse (CSA) and context of disclosure, consequences on children's development, and the presence of family's risk factors. In this study 16 girls victims of CSA, aged between 7-13 years old, and their mothers were interviewed. Semi-structured interviews were carried out and the Brazilian version of Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for School Aged-Children (K-SADS) was used. The presences of family's risk factors (intergenerationality, parental mental disease, and parental substance abuse) and of wide range of emotional and behavior symptoms in the girls, including the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), were observed. The CSA is associated to severe consequences on development, and psychological interventions with victims and their families are necessary.
