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