Preventing Child Sexual Abuse: “It’s Not Just Jenna”—A True Story of Child Sexual Abuse and Survival – Thurs., Nov. 8

As a parent or caregiver to a child, you’ve probably thought often about all the ways you want to keep your child safe from harm. When it comes to child sexual abuse, though, if you’ve ever felt uncertain about where to start or what opportunities you have to think about prevention, you’re not alone. Join Gail Sommer, of NCSC’s Child Assault Prevention program and Meg Bossong, of the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, for a short film, and a discussion about understanding child sexual abuse, how to recognize warning signs that a child might have been abused or that someone might be at risk to harm a child, and everyday actions that can help to make kids safer. (Please note that while this program is appropriate for parents or caregivers of children of all ages, the discussion is geared to adults.) For more information contact Gail Sommer. This workshop is free and no pre-registration necessary.
