Description: 

Human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is an all-too-common and tragic fact of life in today’s world. Children, especially teens, are among its most vulnerable victims. Annually, an estimated 600,000 to 800,000 victims of trafficking are bought, sold, tricked, kidnapped and trafficked across international borders. The UN estimates are even higher finding that as many as four million people are victimized each year by traffickers. U.S. citizens, particularly young girls and runaways, are victims of sex trafficking. Join us and hear from a survivor of teen trafficking and learn how you can help.

Robin Hassler Thompson, JD, MA; Founder and President, Robin H. Thompson & Associates; Senior Program Director, Florida State University Center for the Advancement of Human Rights; Co-Founder, International Justice Connections, Inc.; former Executive Director, Florida Governor's Task Force on Domestic and Sexual Violence.

Jock. Slacker. Superhero. Player. In this webinar, Mark Tappan Ed.D. of Colby College explores the narrow version of boyhood that is sold to boys, and what adults can do about it. Boys are fed a steady diet of media stereotypes about what it means to be a man, including messages about violence, risk-taking, sexual promiscuity, and slacking off. This multimedia presentation offers an overview of this cultural landscape that boys confront everyday, and provides tools that can be used to help boys resist these troubling messages and negative images.

Competing Meanings of Childhood - Implications for Child Sexual Abuse Prevention

How do you view children? Vulnerable? Innocent and inherently good? Inherently evil? Knowledgeable and active participants in society?

Join Stop It Now! for a FREE webcast when Dr. Dominic Pasura of the Centre for Applied Childhood Studies (Univ. of Huddersfield, UK) will help us unpack our assumptions about children to improve our practice of preventing child sexual abuse.

Dr. Pasura is a Research Fellow at the Center for Applied Childhood Studies at the University of Huddersfield, UK. His current focus is on child sexual abuse, including a comparative research study among three countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and developing an evaluation framework for the prevention of child sexual abuse. Dominic earned his PhD in Sociology at the University of Warwick specialising in migration, diaspora and transnationalism. Prior to coming to Huddersfield, Dominic was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Geography at University College London.

The webcast is part of our collaboration with the University of Huddersfield and follows a webcast by Centre Director, Dr. Adele Jones, on child sexual abuse in the Caribbean. It is one way that we are marking the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse (19 Nov) and World Day of Prayer and Action for Children (Nov 20).
