Following the release of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse’s interim report in June, ASCA President, Dr Cathy Kezelman, said the significance of this year’s Blue Knot Day is growing as the issue of child sexual abuse has never been more prominent.

This year Blue Knot Day will focus its attention on the education and training urgently needed for health professionals and organisations working with survivors.

What's the Blue Knot all about?
ASCA's symbol for Blue Knot Day and it's symbol all year round is the tangles knot.
When children are abused they become confused.... life, even in adulthood, can be chaotic and tangles.
ASCA helps untangle the knot of child abuse for adults who were abused as children.
ASCA helps those who have experienced childhood trauma to recover.
