Working with the media to end child sexual abuse
This web conference was the second 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 “Including Efforts to End Child Sexual Abuse within the Sexual Violence Prevention Movement.”
The second web conference on June 7, 2012, was titled “Working with the Media to End Child Sexual Abuse.” Media plays a powerful role in the public and policy leaders understanding of the problem and of potential solutions. Studies related to the coverage of child sexual abuse and its prevention from both Berkley Media Studies Group and Frameworks Institute were discussed along with the implications for prevention strategies. This session is a must see for anyone who is frustrated with the way the media portrays child sexual abuse and wants to know how we can do this differently.
