Presented by: Andra Chamberlin, MA

Course Description:

Child sexual abuse involves any sexual activity perpetrated against a minor by threat, force, intimidation or manipulation and includes both contact and non-contact abuse. The array of sexual activities include fondling, touching a child sexually, making a child touch a person sexually, intercourse, sexual assault, rape, incest, sodomy, exhibitionism, or involving a child in sexual exploitation or trafficking.

This presentation is designed for persons working with children in any capacity – whether as childcare staff, law enforcement or child protective workers new to the field, persons in the ministry, school personnel, youth-serving organization staff, etc.

The presentation topics include an introductory examination of sexual abuse dynamics; the disclosure process and what prevents children from disclosing; how trauma affects brain development and results in life-long challenges for children; how offenders manipulate/groom children, families, and the community; and how to listen to and assist a child who discloses maltreatment.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify the underlying dynamics within a family when child sexual abuse occurs.
  2. Participants will be able to articulate strategies for managing children’s disclosures of child sexual abuse.
  3. Participants will be able to recognize offender’s manipulation/grooming behaviors.
