strange situation

I'm not sure really how to say this, other than just putting it out there as it is. I'm not sure how to go about handling this situation, The problem isn't mine, it's my daughter's. She's sexually reactive due to some inappropriate "games" from her cousins. I'm setting up an appointment for her with mental health proffessionals in the area, but what more can I do to curb this?
Let me explain what I mean... ...
