Circles of Safety: Safety Planning Through Healthy Sexuality Education Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Chicago, IL
Join ChicagoCAC for a full-day symposium on preventing child sexual abuse through the lens of healthy sexual development. Registration is limited and expected to sell out!Protecting children from sexual abuse means understanding healthy sexuality across all stages of childhood. Through this training, you'll learn about sexual development in children and youth so that you can better discern expected and potentially concerning behaviors. We as providers, parents and caregivers are better able to foster safety and prevent child sexual abuse with this important knowledge.
This workshop focuses on preventing the sexual abuse of children through:
- discussion of developmentally expected sexual behaviors in pre-pubescent children
- raising awareness of the scope of sexual abuse and keys for prevention
- coaching participants on how to respond to behaviors and promote healthy relationships
- teaching valuable tools to take back to the children and families you serve
