5 Sexual Grooming Behaviors

A concept that has come up in multiple episodes thus far is “grooming,” or the deliberate effort to create a trusting relationship with a child and community with the ultimate intent of sexual abuse. It’s work that is manipulative and gradual, and often very subtle. And though it can be extremely challenging to identify the actions of a potential offender, it is helpful to understand commonalities between the choice methods of offenders. KCSARC’s Family Services Specialists and Prevention Services Coordinator discuss five common behaviors that appear in the grooming of a child and community before a sexual abuse occurs.

“If we can’t name it, we can’t fix it”: KCSARC’s WordWatch with Mary Laskowski

In 2016, KCSARC started “WordWatch,” a project that enlisted the help of volunteers in gathering data about the language that was used to discuss sexual violence in criminal legal cases. From those findings, KCSARC staff created a series of resources and trainings to help professionals and community members alike understand how our conversations about sexual assault impact the way that it is perpetuated and perceived in our society. Mary Laskowski, formerly of KCSARC, and currently with the Children’s Justice Center of King County, shares the implications of the WordWatch study and why she’s such an advocate for using language that accurately depicts sexual assault: by using accountable language, and not minimizing the impact or implying consent.Resources Mentioned: Claudia J.
