The Mama Bear Effect: Resources to Raise Awareness for Sexual Abuse

Updated: Jan 28, 2022

The Mama Bear Effect is a nonprofit organization changing the way people think, talk, and respond to child sexual abuse.

The Mama Bear Effect® was established in 2013 in response to the perceived need for down-to-earth awareness and prevention education that was not only accessible but inspiring. Child sexual abuse is not necessarily an epidemic because abusers are so effective at perpetrating, but because the taboo, and consequent discomfort and fear, hold protective adults back from being aware, effectively empowering children, and responding appropriately.
