Learn how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse in a group setting led by a Darkness to Light Authorized Facilitator. We want you to become confident and competent, knowing how to prevent sexual abuse and react skillfully if it occurs.
WHY DOES IT APPLY TO ME?
Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.
This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent, or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you know or care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing, child sexual abuse. It’s going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not – unless you stop it from happening. And the good news, it can be stopped.
WHY IS THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. The framework of the training is built off the foundation of The 5 Steps to Protecting Children™.
You’ll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves.
