Healthy sexuality & caring connections: Foundations for prevention

This web conference is sponsored by the Ms. Foundation for Women.

This web conference is the fifth in a series of nine web conferences on Ending Child Sexual Abuse. This is a collaboration between PreventConnect and Ms. Foundation for Women. Please see the materials and recordings from the previous web conference “Voices of experience: the role of direct experience in efforts to end child sexual abuse.”

The fourth web conference on September 10, 2012 is titled “Healthy Sexuality & Caring Connections: Foundations for Prevention.” A clear understanding of healthy sexuality, healthy sexual development and healthy relationships offers individuals, families and communities a foundation to talk about a full spectrum of behaviors. More importantly, this foundation offers everyone a major tool needed to prevent child sexual abuse. This web conference focuses on practical information as well as ways to engage families and communities in these conversations.
