"Shifting Child Sexual Abuse Paradigms" -- A Symposium at OU-Tulsa

Shifting-Image.jpeg
Aired on Thursday, October 8th.

On this edition of ST, we learn about a locally based conference on the prevention of child sexual abuse, which is happening today and tomorrow (the 8th and 9th) at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center (at 41st and Yale). "Shifting Child Sexual Abuse Paradigms" -- hosted by the nonprofit Empowering Adults-Protecting Children, Inc. -- will bring together a range of experts who work every day in this regard with children and families throughout Oklahoma. The main goal of this symposium, as we learn on today's program, is to help move the child-abuse-prevention emphasis from educating children to providing adults with the tools to stop predators. Our guests will both be speaking at this two-day event: Dr. Robert Block is a past president of the American Academy of Pediatrics and an emeritus faculty member at the OU College of Medicine, and Sharon Doty, who works with Arpeggias, is the creator of the Keeping Them Safe adult education program. More about "Shifting Child Sexual Abuse Paradigms" can be found here.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
