“Stop it Now!” Program Director Interview

Yvonne Cournoyer

The Program Director of “Stop it Now!”, a child sexual abuse prevention group, was recently in Missoula to lead a workshop to teach adults how to protect kids from child predators. In this interview with reporter Edward O’Brien, Yvonne Cournoyer, says America expends lots time and energy reacting to the actions of child predators, but should instead focus more on preventing these crimes.
Her recent workshop drew over 100 people representing fields from child care providers to social workers.
Cournoyer says the “Stop it Now” group was founded by a woman who herself was a victim of sexual abuse.
