Children cannot be expected to protect themselves from child abuse. It is the responsibility of adults to be trained in child abuse awareness and prevention. Children are safer when adults are educated in the signs of child abuse and neglect, and how to react to them.
Everyone 18 and older! We all have a responsibility to help keep children safe from child abuse and neglect. This training is registered with SCDSS Child Care Training System for 2.0 Professional Development contact hours.
“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention training that was held today. I have been a social worker 17 years and dreaded attending yet training on child abuse. I was impressed by the trainer and her knowledge on the subject. She had a well organized and informative program. We had great discussions and she answered our questions competently. I believe that everyone who attended the training today felt empowered by the information and tools the trainer gave us. I hope that all our Girl Scout Leaders and staff will take this particular training. If just one girl is helped as a result of this training, the cost and time will be well spent.”
