Controversial and Challenging Issues in Faith-Based Services for Children (Workshop 152)
Workshop presenters suggest a challenging perspective on child abuse within Catholic churches and other congregations and offer participants a vision of more accountable children's programs in congregations that include families and community leaders in the process. The session identifies family strengthening and community building models to enable workshop participants to view faith-based children's programs as part of an expanding web of community-based care and an important gateway to prevention for children and families. Presenters also describe and outline three innovative children's programs with regard to program development and implementation as well as funding and program outcomes.
