Category: Addressing Predatory Behavior


This section contains information about the work of the Addressing Predatory Behavior (APB) working group. For more information about addressing predatory behavior in your meeting, we suggest you start with the following resources presented here: Group Safety Folio, Examples of Group Safety Statements, and Addressing Inappropriate Behaviors. In March 2019, we collaborated with the Literature Committee to publish a Special Edition ComLine representing members’ shares on the topic.
