I am looking forward to my next presentation at the Illinois School Counselors Association conference in Rosemont, IL, on April 21. This presentation will be based on my book titled “Father Figure – my mission to prevent child sexual abuse” and will discuss the numerous challenges involved in working with the “systems” in trying to prevent a situation that could lead to child sexual abuse.

Purpose of the presentation is as follows:

  • To describe a true account story that focuses on prevention of child sexual abuse
  • The story is about “intervention” and “prevention” and the numerous challenges faced in the process
  • To bring about an awareness of the associated issues that require immediate attention
  • To emphasize the fact that the challenges can be overcome if we are truly conscientious about prevention and are willing to work through a multidisciplinary approach
  • And finally, some comments about what could have been done differently in this specific case to promote a more preventive mindset

It is an important topic because:

  • Child sexual abuse is a major issue even though we don’t really seem to want to talk much about it
  • It has been established through studies that even one episode can impact the life of a victim for many years
