Summary This case outlines some of the processes involved in writing a PhD thesis on a sensitive topic, using forensic administrative data, in an Indigenous population. Issues raised include the author's initial concerns about the project, a discussion of using forensic administrative data sourced from police information management systems, dealing with one-to-many relationships between variables, missing data on a main variable, and working with data relating to Indigenous populations. The case concludes with a discussion of the author's emotional response to the topic, with advice on how to manage vicarious trauma that may be caused by doing research on child sexual abuse
