Conference set to help male victims of sex abuse

Former FBI profiler and writer for the hit show Criminal Minds Jim Clemente will be speaking at the conference.

He said kids are at less risk of sexual abuse today than they were 50 years ago and increased dialogue is helping to stop the behaviour.

“The more dialogue we have the more it is part of our everyday conversation I think the risk is going to be reduced and the more people are going to call out bad behaviour.”

He said if children know the risk they can help keep themselves safe.

“We try to keep our children naive and innocent and what that does is it makes them better victims.”

He said the vast majority of kids are molested by someone they know, love and trust, and has this advice for victims.
