Overcoming Barriers to Protecting Children From Sexual Abuse

Participants will: a) distinguish healthy behaviors from boundary violations and pre-offending behaviors; b) practice directly addressing concerning behaviors. Individuals and communities have a strong desire to prevent child sexual abuse.

In this workshop participants will consider what adults can do to assist communities in overcoming these common barriers to protecting children, creating safe spaces through a trauma-informed lens. This program is for teachers and care givers of children of all ages, with a particular emphasis on infants through after school.

Dancing with Porcupines

Have other people’s behaviors ever left you feeling annoyed or frustrated? Have you ever wondered why some people talk things out while others think things through? Or perhaps, you have experienced misunderstandings because of differences in communication styles. If so, you are not alone. We have been there ourselves, but we have found a way to create a collaborative team by making sense of the “people puzzles” in our lives. This session applies an empowering model that leads to a deeper understanding and appreciation of ourselves and others. This model can be used to reduce tension, minimize confrontation and conflict, restore relationships, enhance communication and manage team dynamics.

No Senseless Behavior

Challenging behaviors are not just a reflection of some emotional or social disturbance in a child. They are a symptom of an unsolved problem, often related to unmet needs or a lack of skills and resources. Therefore, we must focus on what a child needs, instead of what an adult or system demands. It is time we move beyond tradition and see challenging behavior as an opportunity to teach alternative ways to get authentic needs met. This session helps us do just that.
