During the months of November and December, the Prevention Coalition will be focusing its communications efforts on Pillar for Prevention #2: The Healthy Development of Children
There is a plethora of research that demonstrates that perpetrators of sexual abuse often seek out vulnerable children. Resilient, informed and healthy children are far less likely to be sexually abused. It follows that an important strategy for preventing sexual abuse is providing parents and other adults with information and tips on fostering the healthy development and sexuality of children.
Many of our members have contributed content and resources to this communications campaign. Thank you to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), Stop It Now!, the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA), and Janet Rosenzweig, Ph.D.
