Creating Child-Safe, Child Friendly Organisations: Can Sexual Abuse be 'Designed Out'?

Anglicare WA is proud to be hosting Professor Stephen Smallbone when he returns to WA in June 2016.

Professor Stephen Smallbone is a psychologist and Professor at the Griffith Criminology Institute, Director of Griffith Youth Forensic Service and Editor of the Journal of Sexual Aggression. Stephen’s research and practice team is concerned primarily with understanding and preventing sexual violence and abuse.

Professor Smallbone will be presenting Creating Child-Safe, Child-Friendly Organisations: Can Sexual Abuse Be ‘Designed Out?' in both Perth and Albany.

Professor Smallbone will focus on:

  • Understanding how, when, where, and why sexual abuse occurs
  • Place-based (or situational) approaches to preventing sexual abuse, particularly in organisational settings

This one day event is suitable for professionals and non-professionals who work with or engage in activities with children, young and vulnerable people in child serving organisations, community based organisations and educational settings.
