CSA prevention and moral panic
December 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
A decades-long moral panic around child sexual abuse has wreaked untold damage on children, families, and marginalized communities. With the ascendence of QAnon it has reached fever pitch—and only now are information gatekeepers taking action. But censoring the outward manifestations of public hysteria around this topic will only drive it underground. How can child sexual abuse prevention advocates address moral panic at its source, so that more rational and inclusive policies can prevail?
In this webinar you will learn:
- Why major child safety groups manipulate public fear to achieve their objectives
- How mainstream media discourse on child sexual abuse metastasized into QAnon
- The signs and symptoms of emotional reasoning and other cognitive distortions
- How CSA prevention advocates can calm the panic and deliver accurate information
