Safer Society is very pleased to announce that our colleague David Prescott was presented with the Fay Honey Knopp Award by the NYS Alliance for the Prevention of Sexual Abuse and the NYS chapter of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers at their annual Joint Conference on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.
We are looking forward to joining the attendees at this year’s New York State ATSA – NYS Alliance Joint Conference in Saratoga Springs on May 16-18. The theme is Reimagining the Future: Integrating What We Know With What We’ve Learned.
The child refugees are at-risk of exploitation by human traffickers. The ones who remain in Ukraine struggle to survive in an environment of destruction that has destroyed the infrastructure necessary for proper sanitation and healthy water supplies. Safer Society Foundation has donated $500 to support UNICEF’s efforts to “scale up life-saving programs for children.”
Raising the price of our books is a last resort, something we resist as long as possible. Supply chain and …

Last year at this time, we were hoping that we’d be looking at the COVID pandemic in the rear view mirror. Obviously, the pandemic remains a serious issue for the entire world. Nevertheless, there are many things we can be thankful for as we look back at the previous year. Number one for us at Safer Society Foundation is our customers. Personnel and supply-chain issues have impacted to some extent or another the printers who manufacture our books and our warehouse which ships them. This has occasionally meant being out of stock with some of our titles, as well as experiencing delays with shipping (we HATE delays). But you, our customers, have faced these problems with us with patience and understanding. Thank you for that.
We were very pleased to learn that Dr. Sandy Jung has received the 2021 Confederation of Alberta Faculty Associations (CAFA) Distinguished Academic Award. Dr. Jung is a Professor of Psychology at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta, and the author of the Safer Society Press book RNR Principles in Practice: In the Management and Treatment of Sexual Abusers. The award recognizes Dr. Jung’s “outstanding research program in her Psychology Crime Lab that focuses on the prevention of sexual assault, child sexual exploitation, and intimate partner violence.”
I am so very pleased to be announcing the promotions of three Safer Society Foundation staff members—Sarah Snow Haskell, Steve Zeoli, and David Prescott.

Editor’s note: The is the first in a series of posts in which we look back at past Safer Talk webinars and trainings to pull perspectives that we feel may be of interest to professionals in our field. During his Safer Talk webinar conversation with host David Prescott, Alan Sroufe, author of A Compelling Idea, was asked to give an example of how attachment in infancy influences the kinds of people we become.
