Special Interest: Talking to Kids about Sexual Abuse
If a child tells you they've been sexually abused, how should you respond initially, and moving forward? If you think a child may be in need of protection from sexual abuse, how should you address it? How can we talk to kids about protecting themselves? Let's Plan to Protect®!
This training is designed for anyone working with children and youth and for parents and guardians. This webinar will provide you with practical tips for talking to kids about sexual abuse including topics from providing accurate, age appropriate information about child sexual abuse to how to respond effectively if a child tells you about sexual abuse. We will address how to use age appropriate examples, speak about healthy boundaries, talk about appropriate touch, and how to empower children to speak up for themselves. Let's raise the bar on protection!
When David's world changes forever and his friend traps him, he doesn't know how to escape. Confused by the way his friend is acting and not knowing what to do, he plays their 'game' in silence, day after day. Afraid he will lose his friend, David finds himself stuck in a dangerous and scary situation. David musters up the courage to tell his parents, MaryBeth and Lee Elliott.
We are honoured to have MaryBeth Elliott as a guest on this webinar, as we learn practical suggestions on talking to children about abuse from our Director of Training, Victoria Bissell, and as MaryBeth shares what they have learned as first responders to abuse, and the days and years following David's abuse.David, MaryBeth and Lee Elliott have written David's Sword - a precious story for children where David shares his first account of abuse, and how he realizes how his sword can help fight the Goliath in his life. David's Sword is available for purchase on the Plan to Protect® Store.
