exit_to_app Massachusetts Society for a World Free of Sexual Harm by Youth

MASOC’s mission is to ensure that children or adolescents with problematic or abusive sexual behaviors live healthy, safe, and productive lives. We strive to prevent sexually abusive behaviors in these youth by training professionals and educating the community about developmentally appropriate interventions, evidence-based treatment, and effective public policies.

MASOC believes that only through specialized intervention can we protect the community, prevent future incidents of abuse, and offer these children and youth the best opportunity to live abuse-free lives. We invest our resources in education and training because specialized assessments and treatment must be administered by professionals trained in working with this population.

 MASOC educates legislators on emerging issue and coordinate its efforts with both the criminal justice and survivor communities. Its Resource Directory helps parents and professionals identify treatment providers in their area. MASOC also co-sponsors with the Massachusetts Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers, an annual conference that brings together over 1,000 clinicians and advocates from across the U.S. and beyond to learn the latest practices and research in the field.
