Overcoming Barriers to Protecting Children from Sexual Abuse

January 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm



| Free

Participants will:

a) distinguish healthy behaviors from boundary violations and pre-offending behaviors;

b) practice directly addressing concerning behaviors.

Individuals and communities have a strong desire to prevent child sexual abuse. However, they often face barriers to protecting children, including having relationships with those exhibiting concerning behaviors. In this workshop participants will consider what adults can do to assist communities in overcoming these common barriers to protecting children, creating safe spaces through a trauma-informed lens. This training is useful for infant through after-school teachers, educators, social workers, volunteers for children, mentors, coaches, professionals in many fields, parents, caregivers, grandparents, and foster parents.
