On Monday June 19, 2017, I will get another opportunity to speak about the story in my book titled “Father Figure – my mission to prevent child sexual abuse”. This presentation will be at the Minnesota School Social Workers Association (MSSWA) 2017 Summer Institute in Cohasset, MN. I will have up to two hours to present on the topic “Prevention of child sexual abuse – the ethical challenges”. I am looking forward to the presentation.

It is good to see that the MSSWA is placing a lot of focus on learning more about sexual abuse. In fact just before my presentation there will be a two-hour presentation on the following topic: “Greater Minnesota’s Law Enforcement Response to Human Trafficking including Prostitution and sexual exploitation”.

It is absolutely critical for school social workers to learn about the issues involved and be prepared to assist if an opportunity arises. School social workers are constantly working with children of all ages. Children often feel more comfortable sharing things with them that they may not feel like discussing at home. If the school social workers are aware of the issues and challenges involved, they might be able to act appropriately in a preventive situation.
