Dr Amanda Robertson is a postdoctoral researcher with prior industry experience in the NSW education sector supporting schools to manage various aspects of child protection and safeguarding. It was in this capacity that she became interested in the phenomenon of female-perpetrated sexual abuse and subsequently pursued research on the topic. Amanda’s doctoral project focused on adult-perpetrated sexual abuse against adolescents in Australian schools, including consideration of women’s perpetration and gender bias. It examined the nature of the problem, its antecedents, and the ensuing institutional responses to ultimately recommend a series of prevention strategies for secondary educational settings. Her research interests broadly encompass sexual offending, child sexual abuse, institutional settings and organisational safeguarding.
