Hurley has been the mental health therapist at the local children’s advocacy center, River Bridge Regional Center, since it opened in 2007. She has taught “Ten Tips” since 2011, as a way to help parents increase comfort and knowledge about speaking to children about sexual abuse and body safety. She offers this interactive workshop to help empower adults with effective strategies for communicating with children on this difficult topic. Her extensive training related to sexual abuse victimization, as well as her work with survivors and their families, allow her to pass on essential knowledge.
