Educate, Empower, Protect

Dr. Mullen and Dr. Hill offer a plethora of information on CSA.

Moderated by Dr. Shani, we will be discussing what makes perpetrators think the way they do, and how this can impact the way we protect our children.

Demystifying perpetrators could provide important clues as to what we need to do as parents and communities to protect our children from harm.

Questions that we will discuss are:

  • What are the different ways in which perpetrators target children and families?
  • Are all predators the same?
  • Is there a cure for perpetrators?
  • What to do if someone is accused of CSA but denies it?
  • Are there children who are more vulnerable than others?
  • Will talking to my kid about prevention open them up to topics that they are not ready for?
  • What if another child touches my child will that cause damage?
  • If you know someone has committed CSA in your community, are you legally allowed to tell others?
  • If someone was treated for CSA, are they safe? Can they be back in the community?
  • And Much More…
