This web conference is the eight 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, “The role of arts in ending child sexual abuse.”

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

This eighth web conference is titled “After Sandusky:  What we have learned to prevent CSA in youth-serving organizations.”

The sexual abuse of young boys by Jerry Sandusky at Penn State captured the attention of the country for months.  Reports covered the pain of the victims, the responsibility of those who did not report allegations and the shock that rocked the entire community.   And with this attention, there is emerging research on working with youth serving organizations and lessons learned from Penn State to focus attention on child sexual abuse prevention.  This webinar will provide an overview of the research and lessons learned and describe efforts underway to advance efforts to end child sexual abuse.
