Description: 

The 2007 APA Taskforce on the Sexualization of Girls documents how the relentless barrage of sexualized media messages compromises girls’ healthy social, emotional, and physical development. Sharon Lamb Ed.D., a Taskforce member and co-author of Packaging Girlhood, explores the images that overwhelm girls each day and exposes the stereotypes and limited choices present. She will share strategies for educators, counselors, and parents to help girls navigate and resist these powerful and omnipresent messages.

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).

Webinar: Women’s Social Context and Well-Being following Police-reported Intimate Partner Violence

A webinar is an on-line seminar and requires access to the internet to connect.

Audio options are:
1) Teleconference (cost of calling long distance to Texas is your responsibility);
2) VoIP (free audio through the internet, speakers are required).

Faculty: Anne P, DePrince, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of Denver. She also serves as the Faculty Director of the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning at the University of Denver. A licensed clinical psychologist in Colorado, she teaches courses on violence against women, research methods, and clinical interventions. Drawing on multiple methodologies (e.g., cognitive tasks, clinical interviews, survey methodology), DePrince’s researchfocuses on the consequences of violence and abuse in both youth and adults with particular emphasis on intimate abuse.

Discussants: Attorney and Advocate, TBA.

Host: Barbara Hart, J.D. Muskie School of Public Service and Battered Women’s Justice Project.

The Webinar will explore women’s experiences following reports of intimate partner abuse (IPA) to law enforcement. Dr. DePrince’s research examines the impact of victim-focused, community coordinated response (CCR) on women’s well being, as well as criminal justice outcomes. Extending past research that has tended to focus primarily on characteristics of victims, this research used spatial analyses (i.e., a geographic information system) to consider relations between women’s social context and well-being following IPA. Thus, this Webinar will describe ways that spatial analyses can inform understanding of women’s experiences following IPA.

Description: 

For LGBT youth, being able to be out or open about their sexual orientation and/or gender identity at school may not only enhance their feelings of school belonging, but also contribute to healthy development and positive well-being. Yet, being out may also be related to increased vulnerability at school. This webinar will present findings from the 2009 National School Climate Survey on how being out in school is related to in-school harassment and assault, psychological well-being, and attachment to school.
