Sexual Abuse Awareness Training Programs

Child Sexual Abuse; the other three "R"s, Recognizing, Responding and Reporting

 

With this program you will be able to RECOGNIZE the victims and potential perpetrators, RESPOND appropriately to the victims, and REPORT with confidence.

There are sexual abuse victims sitting in classrooms everywhere wanting to tell their secret but they just can't. This program helps you recognize victims of sexual abuse by their behavioral indicators.

Children can't learn when they have been or are being sexually abused. When grades begin to drop or a child starts to show signs of violence or anger, these could be indicators that sexual abuse is occurring. Teachers are the greatest resource for discovering these victims.

The program covers the role of Children's Protective Services. It is important for people to know the "reporting criteria" so that their report will get investigated. In order for CPS to investigate an allegation of sexual abuse, the perpetrator must live in the home with the victim, be a relative of the victim, or have care, custody or control of the victim.

When a student confides in a counselor about sexual abuse, the counselor may hesitate to report because of confidentiality issues. Child abuse has several exceptions to the rule and this is one of them; there is no such thing as confidentiality or "privileged communication" between a child abuse victim and counselor, doctor, clergyman, teacher, or anyone else. EVERYONE has the legal responsibility to report suspected child abuse.

Once a teacher suspects that a child has been or is being abused, they may be unclear about what to do next. This program clearly explains the reporting laws and will eliminate any confusion about reporting the abuse.

Recognizing the perpetrator is discussed in this program. There are no social, economic, or racial boundaries for sexual perpetrators. They usually present themselves as genuinely "nice" people, someone that most people would never suspect.

A recent survey of registered sex offenders showed that the average sex offender had a college degree and was active in church.

Before crime can occur, there must be three components present: MOTIVE, ABILITY, and OPPORTUNITY. If one of these are taken away, crime CANNOT occur. Our ignorance is the sexual perpetrators opportunity. We take away this opportunity by educating ourselves.

The majority of children molested are molested by someone they know and trust. Chances are, someone close to you has been or is being sexually abused. Learn "the behavioral indicators" of victims and perpetrators. Learn the molestation process, how to respond to an outcry and learn the reporting laws.

It takes TEAMWORK to prevent sexual abuse. Educate yourself for the safety of our children. Help STOP child sexual abuse.
