Sibling sexual abuse: how to confront the world's silent epidemic
The workshop is based on the presenter's Amazon best-selling book "Sibling Sexual Abuse: A Guide to Confronting America's Silent Epidemic." In this session the presenter will discuss the reasons why sibling sexual abuse is a silent epidemic, highlight relevant research concerning its prevalence and how sibling sexual abuse can devastate families and communities. Sibling sexual abuse is a crisis that affects individuals and families across the world yet we do not hear it discussed in public discourse. The presenter will outline ways to confront and work towards stemming the tide in the battle against this epidemic. Participants will leave equipped with the ability to distinguish sibling sexual abuse from healthy childhood sexual curiosity, will have an understanding of the nature and severity of this problem, and will know how to recognize and how to act when sibling sexual abuse is disclosed. Participants will also understand why the team approach is important in making treatment decisions and in the family reunification process.
Upon completion of this course attendees will earn 3 Category I Contact Hours.
