In this training you will learn strategies to talk to parents and caregivers and about a new prevention resource developed by a local CSAP. Many parents already know the basic facts and want more information about how to protect their children. The topics include: healthy sexual development, teaching consent and boundaries, challenging society's messages, watching for signs of abusers, and how to respond if a child has been sexually abused.
- Participants will learn how to translate the research in child sexual abuse prevention into talking points for parents.
- Participants will gain skills in teaching parents/caregivers how to discuss prevention topics with children, increase their supervision, and improve their response to sexual abuse.
- Participants will learn about existing resources including a new booklet and presentation designed for parent education, both in individual and group settings.
