      Everyone agrees that abuse of children is a terrible phenomenon. Exacerbating the problem is that abusers are often people whom we and our children know and trust.  

      Family therapist, Leora Mandel, is both a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). She hosts the radio program, "The Jewish Home & Family' and this week spoke about child abuse and pedophilia.  She stressed that this is a phenomena which is non-discriminatory and can be found in any segment of society.  

      Questions Mandel discusses on the show include;

      --Who are the perpetrators of this crime?
      --What are the negative effects that abused children suffer with--often long into adulthood?  ------How can we protect our children from becoming victims?
      --What are essential points that every parent needs to convey to their children on this topic in an age appropriate fashion?
      --What are warning signs and red flags that abuse might have or be occuring?
      --What does the recovery process look like?

      Though it is a difficult topic to air, Leora Mandel discusses it honestly and with much sensitivly.
