Preventing Child Sexual Abuse

The publication provides frameworks and examples of prevention work that supports healthy development, protective factors, and resiliency in children, families, and communities. It begins by providing a look into the complimentary field of research and ground work in childhood development and trauma. Next we delve into two nuanced topics: child sexual abuse in Latin@ communities and addressing sexual development for children. The following articles spotlight a new resource tool and the pilot project supported across the state of Washington. It concludes with a Question Oppression and Resources section to help further the conversation about consent.

Partners in Social Change is published by the Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs Prevention Resource Center from its office in Olympia, Washington.The focus of this publication is to present information and resources for the prevention of sexual violence, with a special emphasis on social change.
