In a Position of Trust: Predatory Grooming Within the Inner Circle

Description

According to the CDC, one in four girls and one in 13 boys experience predatory grooming leading to exploitation and sexual abuse. Most often, this behavior occurs within the trusted inner circle—a parent, family member, coach or mentor. With a lack of education about the warning signs of predatory behaviors, victims of grooming—especially those who are most vulnerable—are at risk of being exposed to predators while authority figures are often poorly prepared to see the signs and intervene. Prosecutors Melissa Hoppmeyer and Kathryn Marsh expose how master manipulators groom, exploit and sexually abuse their victims; how to recognize the warning signs of grooming; how the legal process against offenders has evolved; and how public awareness of grooming is leading to more reporting of these acts and achieving justice for survivors.
