The Council marked Child Abuse Prevention Month in October, 2010 with a special evening for parents, and a full day workshop for professionals, with visiting expert Cordelia Anderson.
This [the sexual abuse and exploitation of our children] is a public health issue. We can't prosecute, treat, or educate our way out of this. We've got to see it, name it, recognize the harm, and agree to...change the odds, not just help children beat them."
We will be following up on the tremendous learning gleaned from these events and posting additional information on our web site. Our thanks to our event sponsors for their generous support:
- CHML/Y108 Children’s Fund
