Presentation: The Public Health Harms of Pornography Explained

The pornography of today has created an unprecedented epidemic of sexual harm.

Once a social or health issue involves problems that affect individuals or groups beyond their capacity to correct – responsibility shifts from individual accountability to holding the forces and influences that cause it accountable. While educating individual parents to guide and protect their children is always part of any prevention plan, the problem is well beyond what individual parents and children can do to protect themselves.

In this presentation, Haley Halverson addressed the public health harms of pornography on the brain, the body, and sexual violence, and explained why the public health model is vital to solving these problems.

This event is a part of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s Confronting Sexploitation Summer Seminar Series. To learn more, visit
