Who is the person most likely to sexually abuse a child in school? For the answer, attend this presentation but also learn about the techniques used by perpetrators to disguise and explain their behavior to others. Most people who sexually abuse children are not sex offenders. Statistics show that only 12% of victims ever report the abuse and of those who do only 0.5% of allegations ever lead to a felony conviction. Hence, while criminal background checks are a good starting point for employers, they will not protect children from sexual harm. Professionals who work in schools need to understand the perpetrators of sexual abuse, how they think and how they navigate the child protection measures organizations create. This workshop will provide practical insights from the perpetrators, who lift the lid on their secretive abusive world. Learning how the abusive process works will enable professionals to learn what to look for and how to better protect children from sexual abuse.
