Pro­gram fo­cuses on crimes against chil­dren

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

“Pro­tect­ing Our Chil­dren,” a com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion and crime pre­ven­tion pre­sen­ta­tion, is sched­uled for 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 17 at the Hud­son Val­ley LGBTQ Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, 300 Wall St.

Fa­cil­i­tated by the Ul­ster County Fam­ily and Child Ad­vo­cacy Cen­ter, the pre­sen­ta­tion is based on the work of Cory Jewell Jen­son, co-di­rec­tor of the Cen­ter for Be­hav­ioral In­ter­ven­tion, an Ore­gonbased sex of­fender pro­gram.

Any adult in­ter­ested in learn­ing how to pre­vent child sex­ual abuse should at­tend, or­ga­niz­ers say.

The pro­gram in­cor­po­rates video­taped in­ter­views with con­victed sex of­fend­ers and graphic dis­cus­sions of child sex crimes. Teens and chil­dren should not at­tend, or­ga­niz­ers say.

There is no cost to at­tend the pre­sen­ta­tion, but ad­vance reg­is­tra­tion is re­quested.
