"Care for Kids"—An Innovative Approach to Protecting Young Children from Sexual Abuse (Skills Seminar B)
The presenter introduces the themes and messages form "Care for Kids," an innovative new approach to preventing child sexual abuse, and identifies the critical relationship between healthy sexuality education and abuse prevention. Seminar participants divide into small groups, each taking a careful look at one of the curriculum units: Bodies, Babies, Feelings, Girls and Boys, Touching, Bedtime, and Secrets & Surprises. The small groups report back to the whole group and describe how these learning opportunities specifically support healthy sexuality. Additionally, participants practice evaluating community readiness for such an initiative using a detailed assessment document.
