Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series -- Child Sexual Abuse and Disabilities on Thursday, January 16th at 2pmET / 1pmCT / 11amPT.

Although children with disabilities are three times more likely to be sexually abused, these children have not garnered the same attention of policy makers, the media or community organization. There is also an alarming lack of primary prevention programs available to this population. In this important web conference, the speakers will provide insights into this emerging issue as well as some innovative programs and collaborations.

Hosts: Joan Tabachnick and Cordelia Anderson
Cost: Free

Learning Objectives:
  • Increase understanding of the impact that disabilities may have in increasing the risk for sexual abuse.
  • Identify three barriers to implementing policies to enhance a child’s safety within an organization.
  • Articulate three actions you can take to ensure a child’s safety if she or he has a disability.
Presenters:
  • Sandra Harrell, Project Director, Vera Institute of Justice’s Accessing Safety Initiative
  • Keith Jones, President and CEO, SoulTouchin’ Experiences
