Julie Brand holds a Master’s degree in Counseling and enjoyed a distinguished 25-year career as a school counselor. She uses her unique perspective as both counselor and survivor, to speak and to write about females who sexually abuse children. Since founding CAPER Consulting (Child Abuse Prevention, Education and Recovery) in 2006, she has educated and empowered audiences across the United States with her dynamic programs on mother-daughter sexual abuse, female offenders in positions of trust, male survivors and the opportunities for recovery from childhood trauma. She authored A Mother’s Touch: Surviving Mother-Daughter Sexual Abuse (2007), participated in a Canadian documentary on maternal incest (2013) and has testified as an expert witness on mother-daughter sexual abuse in district court (2017). In 2018, she consulted with CIR in their development of a brochure entitled, “Considerations for Serving Male victims of Sexual Assault and Abuse, A Resource for Service Providers,” as part of the Underserved Populations Training project Julie’s upbeat presentations focus on the power of resiliency and healing in all of our lives.
