Launch of ‘Storm and Stress: An Exploration of Sexual Harassment Amongst Adolescents’
Early intervention in children's lives is the strongest commitment we can make to prevention and protection from sexual violence and understanding the experience of adolescents is the first step to shaping interventions that work.
‘Storm and Stress: An Exploration of Sexual Harassment Amongst Adolescents’ is a report that throws light on Irish adolescents’ experiences and understanding of sexual harassment within their peer communities, and responses required to address it.
The event will be hosted by executive director Dr Clíona Saidléar and will include contributions from Dr Conor O’Mahony, Government Special Rapporteur on Child Protection, and Dr Niall Muldoon, Ombudsman for Children. Author of the report, Dr Michelle Walsh will present the findings of her research study and will be available to answer questions.
