After the tragedy at Penn State, there have been renewed efforts to focus attention on what organizations can do to prevent the sexual abuse of children or teens in their care. This web conference will describe efforts underway to build stronger policies and practice within these organizations and will focus on some practical tools that other organizations can use. Further, this online event builds upon a previous Prevent Connect web conference that examined the emerging research to support policy change within youth serving organizations.

Hosts: Joan Tabachnick and Cordelia Anderson



Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe three strengths that youth serving organizations begin with to help prevent child sexual abuse.
  2. Outline key prevention strategies for youth serving organizations beyond reporting.
  3. Identify three key resources for working with youth serving organizations.
