ON CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE
CSA occurs when a child is engaged in sexual activities that the child cannot comprehend, for which the child is developmentally unprepared and cannot give consent, and/or that violate the law or social taboos of society and which often take place on an increasing continuum of abuse.
The aftermath of CSA can leave years of emotional and physical torment. Many CSA survivors do not get the help they need, stymied by shame, fear, and stigma. For 18 years, Pamela has brought her vast experience to groups worldwide to increase awareness, understanding, and action!
As family members, community members, and bystanders, our increased understanding can help survivors cope and make survivors feel safe. We are their first line of defense. Pamela can provide all types of presentations to all types of groups that help people better understand and cope with CSA. (Pamela has trained teachers, nurses, doctors, judges, lawyers, social workers, police, psychologists, therapists, and others.) She can also work with you on national, state, and community levels to help design and put programs in place to positively impact families, communities, states, and countries. (Please see a partial list of past presentations and involvements on the Events tab.)
