If we are serious about ending child sexual abuse, then we need to pay attention to why there are so many adults, adolescents and even children who perpetrate acts of sexual abuse. In this web conference, two national experts, Joan Tabachnick and David Prescott, bring a wealth of information about what we know (and don't know) about those who sexually abuse. Through this brief web conference, we will explore the research available about the adults who have sexually offended as well as the sexually abusive adolescents and children with sexual behavior problems. The speakers will also explore how this information can be/has been useful to the development of prevention programs.

This webinar, presented by members of the Houston Police Department, describes the cultural shift that occurred within the Houston Police Department over the last two and a half years as a result of a grant from the National Institute of Justice to examine the issue of untested evidence in sexual assaults. The paradigm shift took more than training or revised protocols, but resulted in the integration of stakeholder services and a renewed focus on victims’ needs; both which improve sexual assault investigations and outcomes for victims. This webinar will highlight the creation of the justice advocate position and the victim notification project as two components that clearly contributed to the culture change.
In a sea of toxic media messages, envisioning development of healthy attitudes about sex is no easy task. Join expert Dr. Sharon Lamb in Hardy Girls Healthy Women's next webinar to learn what we, as caring adults in girls' lives, can do to combat unhealthy messages!
Dr. Sharon Lamb has published widely in the fields of moral development, abuse and victimization, sexual development , psychotherapy with children and adolescents, the sexualization of girls, and media and marketing impact on the development of girls and boys. She served on the APA Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls, which found that sexualization in media leads to increased eating disorders, increased depression, and lower self-esteem among girls.
During this webinar, she'll explore alternatives to the narrow versions of sexuality sold to our youth by the media. How do we encourage girls' to use their voices, see themselves as subjects rather than objects, value their own pleasure, and grow at their own pace?
