One in 10 children in the U.S. will be sexually abused before the age of 18. Darkness to Light believes that adults are responsible for the safety of children and that adults should be taking proactive steps to protect children from sexual abuse. It is unrealistic to think that a child should be responsible for fending off sexual advances by an adult.
PROTECTING CHILDREN FROM SEXUAL ABUSE- The 5 Steps to Protecting Our Children™ is an introductory guide to help adults protect children from sexual abuse. Using an evidence-informed approach, these guidelines provide simple and practical actions you can take to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
Great training for any community members that have interactions with children in various community settings: church, neighbor, coach, social work, etc.
You must RSVP to reserve a spot. Contact the San Marcos Public Library for reservations either online or by phone at 512-393-8200.
P.S. Did you know that in abuse cases, more than 90% of victims know and trust their perpetrator? (US. Dept of Health and Human Services).
