Our Director of Client Services Jackie Bateman know better than most the importance of consent education in preventing family violence and sexual assault.

A renowned therapist, trainer, consultant, and writer with more than 20 years’ practice experience, Jackie has gained a deep understanding of family violence from her experiences working with and supporting children and young people exhibiting harmful sexual behaviours, and their families.

Currently, Jackie is Director of Client Services at Kids First Australia. Kids First’s Sexual Assault Counselling and Prevention Program (SACPP) works with children and young people who have experienced or engaged in harmful sexual behaviours. The team recently released an evidenced-informed consent education platform, ‘To Future Me’ which teaches on the topics of sex, consent, grooming behaviour and gender in an age-appropriate digital format.

Jackie sits on the Board of Sexual Assault Services (Victoria) and is Deputy Chair of the Harmful Sexual Behaviour network
