Preventing Sexual Abuse. Reference Sheet 8.
Britton, Patti O., Ed.; McGee, Michael, Ed.
This reference book, developed to present options for the prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse, contains descriptions of creative approaches used to address the problem of child sexual abuse. Some of the programs described offer active and entertaining interventions, such as puppet shows, coloring books, stories, teddy bears, and theatrical productions. Other descriptions concern resources offering straight-forward guidance for professionals or parents on how to prevent child sexual abuse. A few of the resources described fit neither of these two categories but do offer tools for adding to the existing ways of dealng with child sexual abuse. Some of the entries describe the tone, treatment, and approach used, while others provide basic information to help readers to decide whether a program will enhance education initiatives within their community. The 15 programs described are: (1) "Bubbylonian Encounter"--a play; (2) Red Flag, Green Flag People (videotape and coloring book); (3) Child Sexual Abuse Prevention (curriculum); (4) Sexual Abuse Prevention Program; (5) Educating Children about Sexual Abuse; (6) OK/NOT OK Touches (teddy bears, videotape); (7) Preventing Sexual Abuse of Persons with Disabilities; (8) He Told Me Not to Tell; (9) Mandy and Andy Talk about Touching; (10) Preventing Sexual Abuse (Curriculum); (11) Cat and Mouse; (12) Illusion Theater; (13) The Child Assault Prevention Project; (14) Sexual Abuse and Self Protection; and (15) People against Sexual Abuse. A list of 35 names and addresses of other important resources for programs and materials is provided. (NB)
