Free Webcast: How Assumptions about Children Impact Abuse Prevention

Dr. Dominic Pasura

Competing Meanings of Childhood:  Implications for Child Sexual Abuse Prevention

How do you view children? Vulnerable? Innocent and inherently good? Inherently evil? Knowledgeable and active participants in society?


Join Stop It Now! for a FREE webcast (December 7) when Dr. Dominic Pasura of the Centre for Applied Childhood Studies (Univ. of Huddersfield, UK) will help us unpack our assumptions about children to improve our practice of preventing child sexual abuse.

Dr. Pasura is a Research Fellow at the Center for Applied Childhood Studies at the University of Huddersfield, UK.  His current focus is on child sexual abuse, including a comparative research study among three countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and developing an evaluation framework for the prevention of child sexual abuse. Dominic earned his PhD in Sociology at the University of Warwick specialising in migration, diaspora and transnationalism. Prior to coming to Huddersfield, Dominic was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Geography at University College London.

The webcast is part of our research partnership with the University of Huddersfield and follows a webcast by Centre Director, Dr. Adele Jones, on child sexual abuse in the Caribbean.  It is one way that we are marking the World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse (19 Nov) and World Day of Prayer and Action for Children (Nov 20). Learn more.

Join us and Dr. Dominic Pasura of the Centre for Applied Childhood Studies as he explores different meanings of children and childhood internationally and their significance in the prevention of child sexual abuse.
