Child Sexual Abuse, Disclosure, and PTSD: Safer Responses to Disclosure

ISPCAN’s August Journal Club webinar will be Child Sexual Abuse, Disclosure, and PTSD: Safer Responses to Disclosure. The session will be held August 8th at 12pm ET. From the registration page:

This webinar will discuss the relationship between child sexual abuse, disclosure, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Given the importance of safe responses to disclosure of child sexual abuse, this webinar will also discuss VEGA (Violence, Evidence, Guidance, Action), a Canadian public health response to family violence. VEGA includes a handbook for recognizing and responding safely to family violence, as well as scripts and ‘how-to’ videos showing providers examples of how to safely respond to family violence, including child sexual abuse.
