In this workshop you will learn from research findings and the presenter's own very personal survivor story about how to address child sexual abuse as primary prevention. State laws and school district policies, such as Jenna’s Law, were enacted to advocate for child sexual abuse prevention. In many cases of child sexual abuse, the perpetrator strategically grooms the victim and those around the victim. Participants will view clips from the It’s Not Just Jenna documentary, where you will learn about the family perspective on grooming and meet the perpetrator. The It’s Not Just Jenna documentary is shown to groups all across the U.S in English and Spanish for educational purposes. A combination of video, research, and personal testimony will be utilized to illustrate the stages of grooming and how prevention policies can be effective in ending abuse. This workshop will be streamed live as scheduled and also be recorded and available On-Demand from August 13, 2020 until December 31, 2020.
