Preventing Child Sexual Abuse in the Diverse Communities of Faith (Skills Seminar E)
Reports of child sexual abuse in faith-based organizations are at epidemic proportions. This workshop, designed for anyone seeking to establish or improve safeguards to prevent child sexual abuse in faith-based organizations, addresses the following: factors contributing to sexual abuse in the faith-based community; characteristics of child sex offenders and the victim; practical steps to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse; policies and procedures designed to protect children from sexual exploitation; and reporting requirements if child sexual abuse is suspected.
