A Letter From Victor Vieth, Director, Research and Education
During these unprecedented times, Zero Abuse Project is committed to continue to provide online training for professionals who serve and protect children. We wanted to reassure you that we are equipped to provide many of our trainings remotely, via videoconference.
Our platform provides the ability for participants to ask questions during the presentation, and for both presenter and participants to see and engage with one another during the training.
As you navigate through these challenging days, if you are interested in exploring how videoconference trainings can work for your organization and teams, please reach out to [email protected] and our staff will be happy to work with you to schedule a training that fits your needs. More details on our various trainings may be found at https://www.zeroabuseproject.org.
