Research and Training Partnership with the University of Huddersfield
Stop It Now! and the Centre for Applied Childhood Studies (CACS) at the University of Huddersfield (UK) have established a partnership to cooperate on research and applied program activities, including a joint Ph.D. scholarship. This relationship developed through outreach to Centre Director, Professor Adele Jones, based on her UNICEF-funded research project on child sexual abuse in the Eastern Caribbean. The community-based prevention programming of Stop It Now! was known to Professor Jones, and she invited Stop It Now! to participate in follow-up research, exchange and pilot programs on culturally-appropriate child sexual abuse prevention in two regions of the world.
