They say it takes a village to raise a child. This proverb could never be more true than now.
To create safe villages for children, every responsible adult—from parents & caregivers, to teachers, staff, aides, specialists, and administrators—needs to work together to understand and teach children the principles of personal safety within the context of developmentally appropriate practice. Join this powerful webinar to learn practical, actionable information, strategies and skills to protect child safety and prevent child abuse and maltreatment, including sexual abuse. Best practices for organizations will also be featured.
As the people who work directly with young children and their families, we are on the front line of what can be challenging world. As we work to create safe schools and communities, we need to be prepared with new skills, insights, and techniques for safety education. This webinar will help you begin to build a foundation of skills that will prepare you protect and teach the most vulnerable members of our village.
Co-presented by “Doing Right by Our Kids” co-authors, Dr. Amy Tiemann and Irene van der Zande, Founder of Kidpower, this webinar will combine skills and strategies from the “Doing Right by Our Kids” framework, along with additional information from “Earliest Teachable Moment” and the Kidpower curriculum.
Join this webinar to learn:
- The importance of “Safety at All Levels” and having all adults in an organization being responsible for creating a safe environment.
- To understand and resist “The Illusion of Safety.”
- Rules for touch for very young kids, including ways to start teaching consent in positive, age- appropriate ways from birth.
