Session 90: What Every Parent Should Know About Perpetrators of Child Sexual Abuse

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

I mentioned last week that we would be spending some time on the podcast diving into the larger conversations that got started by the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series. Today’s episode is focused on helping parents to be more aware of what they should know about how perpetrators of child sexual abuse continue to victimize children. For this conversation I was joined by Spirit, LPC. Spirit and I chatted about some of the tactics used by perpetrators to prey on children, what we mean we talk about “the grooming process,” how we can talk with our kids about boundaries and consent related to their bodies, and the best ways to respond to your child if they share that they’ve been violated.
