People who sexually abuse children specifically target children who don't have the skills to talk about it. They use this lack of knowledge to keep them silent, shamed, and compliant. Having age-appropriate, open conversations about our bodies, sex, and boundaries is an important step in protecting children. This presentation will teach participants how to talk with and listen to children about sexual abuse and personal safety. This presentation will also teach adults how to react responsibly to a child if they make the choice to disclose and how to make a report.

Target Audience:

Any responsible adult who cares about the protection of children. It is also used for individuals and organizations who seek training for staff and volunteers in the prevention of child sexual abuse, and to enhance their child protection policies and procedures.
