UK: Preventing sexual abuse in the UK: A conversation with Donald Findlater by Jon Brown

As part of the new prevention series I had a conversation with Donald Findlater, Director of Stop it Now UK. (www.stopitnow.org.uk) Stop it Now UK was established in 2002 by the Lucy Faithful Foundation ( www.lucyfaithful.org.uk) as a result of the inspirational work of Fran Henry, Joan Tabachnick, Alisa Klein and others who of course set up Stop it Now in the U.S. The Lucy Faithful Foundation is the only UK wide charity dedicated solely to reducing the risk of children being sexually abused. Stop it Now UK was advocating for the primary prevention of sexual abuse before it was really on the social or political agenda in the UK. Under Donald’s leadership, Stop It Now UK has played a pivotal role in raising the profile and importance of preventing sexual abuse and violence. Full Article

    I would like to see any of you recommending the tiered registry to demand that whatever moneys saved go to prevention programs such as this. The registry just hasn’t been shown to reduce sexual abuse, but has negative collateral consequenses. It’s about time to put resourcess into programs that do make a difference for the good of all. By the way, I was in a program similar to this and it was open to those who had “thoughts”, but didn’t act through on them. It lost funding,too. I think it could be a win/win for offenders and those seeking to avoid offending. Those seeking to avoid offending would see from the offenders just how terrible things can get if they act out; the offenders could learn from those who have not offended some techniques for controlling their actions. I think CARSOL could take the high ground in this by advocating prevention that works along with restoring civil rights and upholding the Constitution.
