Media Questions

Researching a story on the sexual abuse of children? Want to describe characteristics of potential molesters? Concerned about how pre-teens and young teenagers get seduced and exploited? You may find these questions helpful as you prepare to interview Sandy K. Wurtele, Ph.D., the author of Out of Harm's Way: A Parent's Guide to Protecting Young Children from Sexual Abuse and Safe Connections: A Parent's Guide to Protecting Young Teens from Sexual Exploitation, and a psychology professor at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

  • Do you believe there really is no "stranger danger?"

  • What children—or families—are most vulnerable to a predator?

  • Why is "grooming" so effective?

  • If someone other than the parents is suspicious of grooming, how can the parents be convinced there's a problem?

  • How can we spot kids who are likely to abuse or exploit other kids?
