What’s the Evidence?

Examine the Research Supporting the Stewards of Children® Program.

Speakers: Keavy Cook & Dr. Jeff Todahl, PhD

This presentation will first examine the importance of scientific evidence in establishing the acceptability, standing, and usage of a prevention program. Participants will learn more about the specific impediments to evaluating a child sexual abuse prevention program.

We will take a closer look at the extensive research that has and is being performed on Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children® program. The strengths and limitations of this research will be examined. We will end with a discussion of evaluation challenges and opportunities going forward.
