Parenting Safe Children Professional In-Service
As a professional, you are in a unique position to prevent child sexual abuse. Not only can you empower children in your care and educate their parents, but you can also advocate for institutional policies and procedures that support child safety.
In the PSC Professional In-service, educators will learn very specific tools to keep their organization—agency, school, hospital, health group, place of faith, or youth groups—off limits to sexual abusers. The Parenting Safe Children prevention model was developed over two decades in the field.
1. Professional Education — You will learn what makes children vulnerable to sexual abuse.
2. Child Empowerment — You will learn body-safety rules that help keep children safe while in your care.
3. Building Safe Schools and Youth Organizations — You will learn policies, screening techniques, and reporting guidelines for your organization.
