CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE: THE HISTORY,THE REALITY, AND THE HOPE
Think child sexual abuse is something that only happens to once in a while? That it couldn’t affect your life? Think again. It’s time to drag this silent issue out of the closet and learn exactly how prevalent it is and exactly what is being done about it.
Find out what the signs of abuse are, what to do if your child or someone you know is being abused. And what about all those sex offender registries? And what about all the adults we encounter every day who lived through abuse?
One man who knows the answers to these questions will join us Saturday as we discuss this sad, overwhelming and necessary topic.
Eric Jones is the Survivor Support Director for Restore Hope, a Portland area nonprofit with the mission to protect children of all ages from sexual abuse and help adult survivors heal from their trauma. He is himself a survivor and believes all adults have a collective responsibility to keep everybody’s children safe from the many abuse perpetrators hiding in plain sight in today’s society. He says that advocating for child sexual abuse prevention and survivor support is the most satisfying and rewarding work of his life
Jones has authored a book of hope for survivors, entitled “My Climb to Healing from Child Sexual Abuse: A Survivor’s Perspective.” The paperback and e-book version will be released later this year.
Join us as we discuss child sexual abuse – the history, the reality, and the hope.
