Educational Conference: Trust and Betrayal - How Child Abusers Manipulate Victims

Date & Time: 
May 27, 2011 - 8:30am - 12:00pm
INVISTA Centre, 1350 Gardiners Road, Kingston, ON

Featuring Guest Speaker Dr. William L. Marshall

This workshop aims to understand sexual predators in order to help victims heal. Our speaker will present information on the way child molesters groom or set-up their victims, including the lies and tricks they employ to overcome victim resistance, and to reduce the chances the victim will report the abuse. During this half day workshop, Dr Marshall will discuss:

  • Common rationalizations used to justify the abuse
  • The diagnosis of pedophilia and its usefulness or lack thereof
  • Differences between incest and nonincest offenders and the utility of this distinction
  • The value of classifying child molesters in terms of their attachment style
  • Evidence on the effectiveness of treating child molesters
