Subject:Re: Good touch - bad touch

Mike, Here is an article from 2000. I haven't looked at it for a few years, so I don't remember if it speaks directly to your question regarding wording/message. It does gives stats on sexual abuse following participation in a good touch/bad touch program. Gibson, L., & Leitenberg, H. (2000). Child sexual abuse prevention programs: Do they decrease the occurrence of child sexual abuse?. Child Abuse & Neglect, 24(9), 1115-1125. doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0145-2134(00)00179-4 N.B. The link will only work if your institution subscribes to Child Abuse & Neglect.
