WEEK 4 ASSIGNMENT6The Impact of culture on care of sexually abuse AdolescentIn some culture, the victim may be reluctant to disclose information because of shame, embarrassment, and cultural or religious belief. Some culture belief, it is inappropriate to discuss intimate relationship with other. For example the Tswana society in Botswana sexual abuse are denied among the community, the fact that sexual matters in any society belong to the private sphere. Culturally, in this society child sexual abuse was relegated to the private sphere and was not to be talked about. If it occurred within the family or among siblings it would be concealed in an attempt to preserve the pride, status, integrity, and respect of the family. Some instances, it was kept a secret so as not to jeopardize the family’s economic support. The perpetrator, in most instances, would be a bread winner and the motivation to conceal these actions would be that if this bread winner was incarcerated or sentenced to prison, then the family would have no means of Survival. The circumstances under which these cases are handled deter the victims from keenly taking a stand and seeking help to ensure that the perpetrator is punished (Seloilwe & Thupayagale-Tshweneagae, 2009)
