Good questions. I certainly would not be encouraging disclosures in real time.

It would have been closer to CSA in general, with the gist being who perps can be, how grooming works, the stats, and how it isn't their fault. And that even if it does happen, you can build a good life afterwards.

It sounds broad, yes, but this is how the other presentations from when I was in that high school worked. The guy with alcoholism talked to the kids about drinking and peer pressure. The bulemic girl talked about eating disorders and body image issues. The full-body burn victim talked about disabilities and social expectations. With that entire program canceled, it makes less sense - is more random - to have a CSA survivor talk about CSA and basic safety. I honestly think I'm more upset that they canceled the program altogether than that I didn't get to give a little talk. As a former teacher & youth mentor for those age groups I know I could have done it, but they've clearly changed their entire mindset regarding experiential learning on issues of social need.

BRAVO!!!

I love it! PERFECT for any teen group.

Now if they will pay attention long enough so as to not feel threatened by the free-speak!

Awesome approach!
