In recent years, child sexual abuse has gained increasing attention as a serious problem for children of all ages. The most widely accepted model for preventing sexual abuse involves programs designed to empower children, which are delivered in the classroom setting. This book provides a fresh look at the prevention movement, proposing that little attention has been paid to the effectiveness or appropriateness of empowerment efforts. The authors identify the unanticipated consequences of prevention training, provide the most detailed analysis available of exactly what is being taught in these programs, and lay the groundwork for a reconsideration of prevention approaches with children.
