A partial list of unpublished Philippine university research related to child sexual abuse – Part II
Monaliza V. Calapini-Prasad and Lois J. Engelbrecht
The purpose of the Philippine Journal of Child Sexual Abuse is to encourage Philippine-based research that will facilitate to build a national paradigm for child protection. Most research is western-based and published in western international journals. This journal aims to publish indigenous research in order to develop effective services to our indigenous population. This appears a daunting challenge. Yet local research does exist, albeit mostly unpublished.
The search for university research yielded a healthy list. This article shares a mere handful from some of the Mindanao universities; the former issue listed studies from Luzon and Visaya universities. The research chosen to share were not for any particular purpose except to show the multidisciplinary nature of the issue.
In order to maintain the integrity of the individual authors, very little editing was done on the text. The purpose of what editing did occur was to report the research in a somewhat similar format. This was a challenge because the research was done at different levels (course work, thesis, dissertation) and from different universities and thus using different formats with different expectations and standards.
