I had the honor to be a speaker at the Round Table along with representatives from the German Embassy, Partnership for Every Child and the International Leadership and Development Center.
Raising awareness of the problem and lack of resources in helping children who have been sexually abused in Ukraine.
Round Tables are held to present ideas, projects or movements. This Round Table was to raise awareness of the need for partnership in order to address the significant problem of Child Sexual Abuse in Ukraine. This discussion included persons from many different organizations; including Children's Services, International Organization of Migration (IOM), SOS Childrens Villages, Alliance Ukraine Without Orphans, HIV/Aides Alliance, the Government Institute, People First, The A. Foundation, and others.

This Round Table is the kick off for the conference which will be held tomorrow at the University. We will have over 100 participants who are coming together to share, learn and make a difference. We are pleased to have with us Dr. Georgette Constintineau. She is from Ohio and an expert in the area of child sexual abuse. We will both deliver key note speeches tomorrow and then each of us will conduct a workshop which will be 1 1/2 days of intensive training for professionals, parents and caregivers. Georgette will be presenting her workshop on the Dynamics of Child Sexual Abuse and I will be presenting a workshop on Parenting and Caring for a Child Who has Been Sexually Abused.
Following the workshop, next week Dr. Constintineau will conduct an intensive two day training with professionals on significant medical and emotional issues abused youth face and what those who work with these youth might be able to do to help them.
