Protecting Your Children from Sexual Abuse

I attended training in Delaware this past weekend regarding an organization that is promoting child sexual abuse prevention & awareness training. The training provides you with video testimonials from actual survivors of child sexual abuse and from experts who deal with sexual abuse and its prevention. Hearing about this effort made me think about this topic in relation to the children we work to place through PWNL.

Often times we are focused on what to do AFTER sexual abuse of a child has occurred but it is also important to recognize what we can do as parents, child welfare professionals or anyone who cares about the well being of children to PREVENT child sexual abuse from ever occurring or recurring.
