National Symposium Pre-Conference Session Announced -- Child Sexual Exploitation: Scope of the Problem and Possibilities of Prevention with Sharon Cooper and Cordelia Anderson!

07 Jan 2014 9:36 AM | Adrienne Hoffman-Lewis (Administrator)
Child Sexual Exploitation: Scope of the Problem and Possibilities of Prevention presented by Sharon Cooper, MD and Cordelia Anderson, MA is one of three dynamic Pre-conference Sessions being offered in conjunction with the 30th National Symposium on Child Abuse March 24-27, 2014 at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL.
 
Well beyond increasing awareness of the problems and risk reduction strategies, this training focuses on a wide range of methods used to combat exploitation and abuse. Participants will be provided an overview of the normalization of sexual harm, with special attention to the neurobiological impact of exposure to pornography on the developing brain and more broadly on children, youth, and culture. Barriers to effective prevention strategies, including the differences in public health, social justice, and criminal justice frames, are addressed.  In addition, several examples of actions across the socio-ecological model and the spectrum of prevention will be presented.  The session will help participants to take more effective action by discussing methods being used to counter demand, engage survivors and others, and build effective movements for social change.
