This course was updated 79 days ago. If you're about to take the exam, you may benefit from reviewing the exam questions listed below before starting on the actual exam.

About the Course:

Child exploitation material (CEM) is widely available online. Existing research indicates that the parents and/or parental figures of victims are notably represented in offender populations. However, there is limited research into cases of parental involvement in the production and distribution of CEM. This paper presents the findings of a study of Australian legal cases in which parents were prosecuted for producing CEM of their children. Drawing on case reports from Australian media and legal databases, this study created a database of 82 cases of CEM production and distribution perpetrated by parents and/or parental figures from 2009 to 2018. The presentation will discuss the common characteristics and scenarios of parental CEM perpetration, and emphasize opportunities for prevention, early intervention and improved responses to victims.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, The role of parents in the production of child sexual abuse material of their children created by Michael Salter, PhD in 2020.
