Details

Having age-appropriate, open conversations about our bodies, sex, and boundaries is an important step in protecting children from sexual abuse.

Talking about personal safety and sex creates a protective bond between parent and child, increases confidence for both, and instills knowledge that makes children and teens much less vulnerable. Building on the education provided in Stewards of Children®, Darkness to Light’s evidence-informed training on preventing, recognizing, and reacting responsibly to child
sexual abuse, you will learn how to talk with and listen to children about sexual abuse and personal safety.

It is highly recommended that participants complete Stewards of Children® prior to taking the course. R.O.C.K. Mat-Su also offers the Stewards of Children Free Training on a monthly basis and per request.

WHAT ARE THE OUTCOMES?
During the training, you will hear compelling stories from
experts and survivors about how talking to kids can help
prevent sexual abuse. You will also:
• learn why relationships and resilience are the building
blocks of safety for children.
• receive examples of how to talk about personal safety
with children of all ages.
• learn how to use everyday opportunities to talk with
children about sexual abuse.

WHAT ARE THE DISTINCTIVE FEATURES?
• stories from featured survivors, experts, youth serving
professionals, and parents.
• a course worksheet designed to help reinforce key
concepts and serve as a resource guide on talking to
kids about sexual abuse.
• interactive discussion about important issues
