Research Webcast: Healing for Children Who Have Been Victimized Online
Join us December 8 and 9th for this webinar on strategies for helping children recover from online abuse presented by Tink Palmer, an expert on the sexual abuse of children via the Internet.
Date: Thursday, December 8, 2011
As the number of children who are victimized online increases, new practice issues are revealed. This workshop addresses these issues for those who work with families and children, including law enforcement.
In this workshop you’ll learn about:
- Different ways in which children can be abused online
- Issues of young people displaying sexually harmful behaviors
- How our practice needs to change from point of disclosure or discovery of the abuse to recovery of the child victim and his/her family
- Possible solutions to meet these new challenges
