WHAT WE DO
NEARI Press & Training Center provides resources and training for the prevention of sexual violence. We are a source of practical, cutting-edge information for professionals and the public about promising and best-practice interventions for individuals with sexual behavior problems. We believe that by addressing healthy sexual development in children and adolescents, and responding to sexual behavior problems in children, adolescents, and adults, we can prevent sexual abuse before it is perpetrated.
NEARI Press publishes the books, booklets, manuals, curricula, and other written resources clinicians, researchers, policymakers, preventionists, and others who work with children and adults with sexual behavior problems can use to enhance their clinical practice, learn about the latest research and recommendations for policy, and ensure that they are following best practice to prevent sexual abuse. Our expert authors write about, among many other topics, how to prevent sexual violence, the impact of pornography on our society, using the Good Lives Model in clinical practice, working with the families of youth with sexual behavior problems, clinical approaches to working with individuals with sexual behavior problems and development disabilities, internet crimes against children, and so much more. See our catalog for details.
We are also a training center! We are a full-service resource for webinar-based and in-person trainings on clinical best practice, assessment, and so many other topics. Our annual webinar series presented by NEARI Press authors and other experts in the field is always excellent and a perfect way to access Continuing Education credits (CEs). Our in-person training series with luminaries from the field is an opportunity to dive deep into the subjects most critical to clinicians and others and offers CEs, as well. Check out our webpages for more information on these opportunities.
We publish an informative monthly e-newsletter that is chockfull of research-to-practice analysis, updates from the field about conferences and trainings, and sexual abuse prevention news. Sign up!
NEARI Press & Training Center is also the home of the innovative Parent 2 Parent (P2P) project. Established in 2016 with funding from Raliance, P2P is an initiative designed to prevent child sexual abuse by providing parents and other caretakers of children with the support, tools, resources, and information they need to: 1) discern between healthy sexual exploration and inappropriate or harmful sexual behaviors in children and teens; 2) address problem behaviors before sexual harm is perpetrated; 3) access competent and healing responses for situations in which a child or adolescent has perpetrated sexual harm; and 4) ensure the prevention of re-offense by their child. Check out our P2P pages and be sure to refer the families with whom you work to them.
