Summary  Clinical studies indicate that children who engage in coercive or aggressive sexual acts are more likely to come from conditions of developmental adversity. Broadly speaking, the context of risk for children engaging in these behaviours aligns with particular indicators of social exclusion; geographic disadvantage, compromised family functioning and poverty. Children from such conditions of adversity are thought to be doubly compromised, as the context of risk that gave rise to the behaviours may also compromise families’ engagement with specialised therapeutic services to modify a child’s behaviours. In the absence of empirical data on the prevalence of problem sexual behaviours in Australia, this paper suggests that that scholarship and data collection underpinning the social inclusion policy agenda may inform the targeted delivery of secondary prevention strategies for children most at risk of engaging in problem sexual behaviours.
