Parenting Safe Children Workshop
with Feather Berkower
 
The Parenting Safe Children workshop offers valuable information, ideas, and tools to help you prevent child sexual assault in your home and community! The workshop covers three prevention areas and empowers you to discuss body-safety with children and caregivers in a positive and effective manner. This 4-hour workshop is for parents, relatives, educators, therapists—anyone who cares about children! 

Objectives:
  • Identify what makes children vulnerable to sexual assault so you are empowered with the facts.
  • Learn body-safety rules so you can teach your children about personal body safety, in an age-appropriate, positive, and non-threatening manner. 
  • Develop screening techniques so you can decide more confidently which caregivers you want to entrust with your children.
