The second web conference on June 7, 2012, is titled “Working with the Media to End Child Sexual Abuse.” Media plays a powerful role in the public and policy leaders understanding of the problem and of potential solutions. Studies related to the coverage of child sexual abuse and its prevention from both Berkley Media Studies Group and Frameworks Institute will be discussed along with the implications for prevention strategies. This session is a must see for anyone who is frustrated with the way the media portrays child sexual abuse and wants to know how we can do this differently.
