I use my training as a sexuality educator to focus on child sexual abuse prevention and intervention. My current projects include synthesizing research on school climate with best practices in sex education, bullying prevention and harassment prevention. I work with school districts in NJ and PA on programs, policies and procedures to maintain a healthy sexual climate and developing a crosswalk between the FoSE National Sexuality Education Standards and best practices in child sexual abuse prevention for use by educators and advocates.
I am also working as the national consultant for sex abuse prevention programs for Prevent Child Abuse America to develop and refine an instrument to assess behavioral change among participants in adult-focused sexual abuse prevention programs.
