Who Should Attend This Event?
The goal of the symposium is to bring together professionals in the field of child sexual abuse prevention to present findings from their research, discuss ways to improve our response to child sexual abuse and develop stronger prevention initiatives.
Attendees can expect to walk away with a better understanding of the policies and science that affect our current understanding of child sexual abuse prevention as well as hear about the real life experiences of those affected by child sexual abuse. Anyone with an interest in preventing child sexual abuse is encouraged to attend.
Our audience is broad and includes clinicians, therapists, professors, researchers, social workers, educators, healthcare professionals, lawyers, policymakers, representatives from nonprofit organizations as well as students, the media and members of the general public. Our symposium is free and open to the public.
