PreventConnect Reading Club: news coverage of child sexual abuse



Berkeley Media Studies Group published a report on news coverage in the United States of child sexual abuse

Case by Case: News coverage of child sexual abuse released by the Berkeley Media Studies Group with support from the Ms. Foundation for Women, demonstrates that child sexual abuse is underreported and that media coverage does not describe the social context of child sexual abuse.  The report includes recommendations for journalists on ways to improve coverage of child sexual abuse as well as recommendations for advocates to help push for policies that will institute prevention.

On August 29, 2011, join other PreventConnect prevention practitioners throughout the country in the August PreventConnect Reading Club to examine “Case by Case: News coverage of child sexual abuse” published by the Berkeley Studies Media Group.
