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.  HostsJoan Tabachnick & Cordelia AndersonGuestsKaren Baker, Director, National Sexual Violence Resource CenterKeith kaufman, Ph.D., Portland State UniversityJanet Saul, Ph.D., Research Psychologist and Chief of the Prevention Development and Evaluation Barnch of the Division of Violence, Centers for Disease Control and PreventionCost is FreeLearning Objectives:
