Child sexual abuse has been in the headlines constantly since the Jimmy Savile scandal broke in 2012. But why? Why is it such a big story? Why does it impact the victim so profoundly? What is the ‘transfer of responsibility’ in grooming? How many people are abused, by whom, and why? Is there hope for recovery?
Some people might say, ‘Oh, but I’ve been on child sexual abuse training before.’ We can guarantee that this training will be different! Carolyn will be covering rarely discussed subjects such as images of abuse (also known as ‘child pornography’) and the sexual abuse of children by females, as well as talking from her personal perspective both as a survivor of organised abuse and incest, and from her experience over 15 years as a foster carer. This will be a hard-hitting, but hope-filled day and is suitable for a wide range of professionals working with survivors, in particular counsellors and psychotherapists, but also people working in adoption and fostering, Rape Crisis, social work, occupational health, education, police, prisons, lawyers and healthcare. Survivors and supporters are also welcome. Whilst all of our days are run in a safe and contained way, the nature of this topic means that some may find elements of the day difficult.
