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).

Description: 

LGBT students are a diverse population and although they all may share some experiences related to school climate, these experiences also vary. Based on findings from the 2009 National School Climate Survey, this webinar will explore how school experiences vary for LGBT youth across race/ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and also by school characteristics: grade level, school type (public, non-religious private, religious-affiliated), geographic region, and locale (urban, suburban, rural).
