Policy changes that help and hinder our ability to end child sexual abuse
Monday, December 10, 2012
11 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific Time
(2 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern)
This web conference is the last 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, “After Sandusky: What we have learned to prevent CSA in youth-serving organizations.“
This last web conference is titled “Policy changes that help and hinder our ability to end child sexual abuse (CSA).”
On many issues, it has been proven over and over again, that education alone will not change a trajectory towards harm. What has made a large impact are the very real shifts in the cultural climate and political will of policymakers to address the sexual harm of children. This webinar will provide an understanding of current policy approaches to preventing CSA – both intended and unintended consequences as well as the efforts underway to strengthen a CSA prevention policy agenda.
