The prevention of child sexual abuse is complex and, we believe, requires the effort of multiple sectors within a community.
Check out our 2018 conference "Strengthening Child Safety and Wellbeing through Integrated Data Solutions".
Dr. Sheridan Miyamoto, Assistant Professor of Nursing, received a grant from the Pennsylvania Commision on Crime and Delinquency to support the SAFE-T Center.
Dr. Jennie Noll, Director of the Child Maltreatment Solutions Network, talks about sexual abuse on the "Your Parenting Mojo" podcast.
The conference will focus on identifying and addressing the barriers to meaningful change and innovative policy and practice solutions to the foster care system’s most pressing challenges.
Yo Jackson, Associate Director of the Child Maltreatment Solutions Network, recently provided testimony on strengthening prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect to the U.S. House House Committee on Education and Labor’s subcommittee on Civil Rights and Human Services.
In families where child maltreatment is present, biological responses to conflict may be altered in both parents and children.
