Contact us

We welcome your questions or comments! Please use our mailing list form to receive information about specific topics or to update your address.

This is the only email address I could find on their site.
Send them some questions!

They welcome questions and comments.  Will they respond to any of my many questions?
or......Will they email me back and invite me to spend the 3 or 4 hundred dollars in order to attend this conference?

These are the questions I sent to them.

Have you ever calculated or posted anywhere the statistics of the conferences on Child Sexual Abuse?

How many years has this conference been held?
What are the profits of this conference?
What are the statistics of the growth of child sexual abuse from when the child sexual abuse conference began and what are the statistics of child sexual abuse now?
What concrete new actions are being taken from any of the experts from these conferences and what affect has there been in the fight against child sexual abuse?
Has anyone ever done a survey of the steps taken in years past as to what actually is beneficial to addressing child sexual abuse and do you ever just say, "This is not working and we need to try something else?"
Have any of the experts contacted the US Government to demand action in what can only be described as an epidemic?
Has there ever been any advice as part of these conferences as to how to address the ongoing issue of a child sexual abuse survivors being tossed under the bus?
Do you network with other child sexual abuse conferences and do the experts all get together to brainstorm together as to what is and what is not working?
There is no statute of limitations for a survivor of child sexual abuse, has there ever been steps to change the laws to even the playing field for a survivor of child sexual abuse to erase the statute of limitations?
Are you aware of the growing number of pockets of communities of pedophile families hiding

These are just a few questions I have off the top of my head.  I look forward to reading all the wonderful advances that you have.  Thank you for your attention to my questions.

Uncounted Survivor


These are the questions I have sent to the University of Wisconsin.  I have had very little success in receiving responses to any emails I have sent out over the years.  Let's just see if they respond at all.
Sorry but I do not have much faith.


The page on their website with the invitation to send questions and comments would not allow me to actually follow through and send the questions.  Seemed a little suspect.  I had to search out on a different page on their site for an actual email address.  That email I mailed these questions to was to receive a brochure for the conference.  I asked in my email for them to send me a different email address where I could send my questions to accept their invitation of asking questions if I had in fact not mailed my questions to the correct email.

If they do not respond to my questions, I feel they need to rescind that invitation.

*I have just re-mailed an email that I sent with the same questions.  I will most likely next send out a snail mail letter where someone will have to sign for it.  I will continue to reach out to the powers that be.   I honestly don't know if any of these conferences are doing any good.  I think I will search out all the major child sexual abuse conferences and ask the same questions of them as well.
