Preventing Child Sexual Abuse Within Youth-Serving Organizations

Organizations that work with children and youth must strive to create safe environments for youth, employees, and volunteers so that young people can grow, learn, and have fun. It is vital that youth-serving organizations create a culture where child sexual abuse is discussed, addressed, and prevented.

 

CDC’s Injury Center has developed Preventing Child Sexual Abuse Within Youth-serving Organizations: Getting Started on Policies and Procedures to assist youth-serving organizations as they begin to adopt prevention strategies for child sexual abuse. The guide identifies six key components of child sexual abuse prevention for organizations:

  • Screening and selecting employees and volunteers
  • Guidelines on interactions between individuals
  • Monitoring behavior
  • Ensuring safe environments
  • Responding to inappropriate behavior, breaches in policy, and allegations and suspicions of child sexual abuse
  • Training in child sexual abuse prevention
The guide includes prevention goals and critical strategies for each component. Suggestions for addressing challenges and tools to help organizations get started are also provided.  To download this publication link to: http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/dvp/PreventingChildSexualAbuse.pdf

New Book on link between sex trafficking and pornography

Captive Daughters announces a new book: "Pornography: Driving the Demand in International Sex Trafficking " (445 pages, $24.99 paper, $34.99 hard), now available for purchase online.

LOS ANGELES, CA - Two years in the making, Pornography: Driving the Demand in International Sex Trafficking, is now available for purchase. Published by Captive Daughters Media, a non-profit educating the public about sex trafficking, the book is available directly from the distributor Xlibris.

Editor, David E. Guinn, says of the book: The 21st century is witnessing a curious dichotomy: activists becoming energized in their efforts to combat the horrors of the growing trafficking in women and children for purposes of sexual exploitation, while pornography and prostitution grow exponentially in profitability and social acceptance. Few recognize the contradiction in these trends, the ineluctable connections between pornography and prostitution that create the demand that trafficking victims fulfill.

Now, Pornography: Driving the Demand in International Sex Trafficking examines the link. The authors, leading figures from the academic and activist communities resist the gentrification of pornography and prostitution while confronting its role in trafficking.

The book includes essays by: Anna Agathangelou, Esohe Aghatise, Janine Benedet, Julie Bindel, Vednita Carter, Michelle Dempsey, Gail Dines, Annalisa Enrile, Melissa Farley, Ken Franzblau, Rus Ervin Funk, Robert Jensen, Christopher Kendall, Catharine MacKinnon, Neil Malamuth, Eileen Pitipan, Diana Russell, Chris Stark, Chyng Sun and Rebecca Whisnant.
