About The Event
Did you know that 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday? Also, children living without either parent such as foster children are 10 times more likely to be sexually abused than children that live with both biological parents.
Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences.
Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. The framework of the training is built off the foundation of The 5 Steps to Protecting Children™.
You’ll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families, and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves.
THE 5 STEPS TO PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN™
Stewards of Children® is based upon the 5 Steps to Protecting Our
Children™. The steps are a guide to help adults protect children using
simple and practical actions to prevent abuse or intervene if abuse
STEP 1: Learn the Facts – Over 90% of sexually abused children are
abused by someone known by the child or family and 1 in 10 children
will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
STEP 2: Minimize Opportunity – More than 80% of child sexual
abuse incidents occur when children are in isolated, one-on-one
situations with adults or other youth.
Step 3: Talk About It – Open conversations with children about body
safety, sex, and boundaries is one of the best defenses against child
Step 4: Recognize the Signs – The most common symptoms of child
sexual abuse are emotional or behavioral changes.
Step 5: React Responsibly – Intervening when boundaries are crossed
or reporting abuse when suspected is critical to protecting all children
from sexual abuse.
After completing the two-hour training you will receive a certification of completion with two clock hours to provide to your licensing agency to receive foster parent training hours.
