child focus prevention

What’s Available?

Speaker: Tiffany Sawyer, The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy

Schools and youth-serving organizations are in a unique position to help young people shape positive, healthy attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that work to prevent sexual abuse and exploitation. Training for adults who work with children is essential; additionally, prevention efforts which include broad skills-based education for children throughout school years decrease vulnerability and create a safe, supportive learning environment.

This presentation will provide background on best practice, principles of prevention, identifying resources for the classroom, developing a prevention plan, age appropriate teaching suggestions, analysis of specific child-focused prevention programs, and guidelines for implementation and evaluation.
