Between 1993 and 2007, Stop It Now! and its local affiliates conducted ten separate telephone surveys to understand what adults know and believe about preventing child sexual abuse. Results from surveys of over 5,000 US adults provide a unique picture of where the American public stands on the highly-charged issue of child sexual abuse.  This one-hour webcast will review the survey’s keys findings and program implications; important for everyone who is working to keep children safe from sexual abuse.

For professionals, policy makers and ordinary adults, to prevent the sexual abuse of children, we have to understand what adults know and think about the issue. If you think you know how adults view the issue, you may be surprised what you learn.
