Mondays with ME: Sexual Abuse (7/30/12)
What do you think it takes to prevent our sons and daughters from becoming victims of sexual violence?
Sexual violence is a frightening topic, never more so than when it involves children. Many times discussions of prevention stop at efforts to get potential perpetrators off the street. But experts know prevention also must target the unhealthy images that touch our children from early ages, undermining their ability to learn what healthy, respectful relationships look like. You will not want to miss this important and timely discussion with Patty Wetterling, a mom whose 11-year-old son Jacob was kidnapped in 1989 and a prevention advocate and educator for 22 years (currently as Director of the Sexual Violence Prevention Program at the Minnesota Department of Health).
