Pillars of Policy for Child Sexual Abuse Prevention:

A Discussion

Wednesday, March 18, 2015
11am Pacific Time, 2pm Eastern Time

It could be argued that critical conversations are the mechanism in which tangible social change can occur. The art of sharing, arguing, or deconstructing theoretical concepts, until they become more malleable for practice, is not easy, but moves us in the field of child sexual abuse prevention to the places we want to go. As an example, the Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation has released the Six Pillars of Prevention to build a dialogue around the creation of a comprehensive policy agenda to benefit children and prevent sexual abuse. In this web conference, participants will learn how policy matters in prevention work, and what tools they can use to bridge the theory of action with the practice of action. In this web conference, participants will learn how policy matters in prevention work, and what tools they can use to bridge the theory of action with the practice of action.

On Monday I attended the 2nd annual meeting of the National Coalition for Sexual Health (NCSH). Having participated last year, I was thrilled to welcome several new partners to the table, including PreventConnect partners, National Sexual Violence Resource Center. Our presence at the meeting, and as integral members of the coalition, reflects a growing trend of partnership-building to close the gap between the traditionally siloed sexual health (teen pregnancy prevention, STI prevention…) and sexual, domestic, and dating violence prevention movements.

At this year’s meeting, I was most impressed with the commitment to addressing and including the prevention of gendered violence. Amongst discussion about avoiding assumptions, media messages, and more, members frequently brought up the topic, linking it to key sexual health indicators and outcomes. I’ve participated heavily in many sexual health committees and efforts throughout the years and the NCSH is one in which I feel our expertise and presence is highly valued and included.

As I’ve posted in the past, the NCSH released a sexual health guide this year, and you can look forward to more publications and resources coming soon. For now, learn more about sexual health in this online course and listen to podcasts about the connections between sexual violence prevention and sexual health promotion.
