Streetlife is an unhealthy environment for children. However, in reality, social conflict, economical and low educational levels forced children to be involved in the rigors of street life. The involvement of children in street life carries a great deal of vulnerability for them, one of which is child sexual abuse (CSA). This study aims to examine the effectiveness of psychoeducation in increasing the knowledge of street children as a preventive measure in preventing sexual CSA. The psychoeducation consisted of five sessions, which were carried out using a discussion method that includes images and role-play. Fifteen street children aged 12 to 15 years were involved as participants. Data were collected through interviews and Children’s Knowledge of Abuse Questionnaire-Revised (CKAQ-R) to see the effectiveness of psychoeducation, then analyzed quantitatively. The results show that psychoeducation as a preventive intervention is effective in increasing the understanding, alertness, and skills of street children in dealing with the risk of CSA that may occur around them.
