Stewards of Children: Learn How to Prevent, Recognize, and React Responsibly to Child Sexual Abuse - via Webex only
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 unless you stop it from happening. The good news is, it can be stopped. Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. The framework of the training is built off of 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. Stewards of Children® is the only evidence-informed, third-party evaluated child sexual abuse prevention training of its kind.
