Training Description
This training provides professional caregivers of young children with increased awareness, knowledge and understanding of child sexual abuse. Participants will learn key concepts for the prevention of sexual abuse, and recognize the importance of teaching and understanding healthy sexual behaviors in pre-pubescent children as a critical component of primary prevention. Through increased knowledge and skill building, participants will enhance their own comfort and confidence in addressing children’s safety, and communicate more calmly and effectively with children and adults regarding safety planning and responding to warning signs. The training format is tailored to adult learners and includes slides, activities and handouts. Participants are asked to complete a pre- and post-survey to support Stop It Now!’s practice of regular evaluation for the basis of establishing evidence-based practices. These surveys will be sent directly to Stop It Now! Staff.
