This presentation focuses on what works when talking to children and teens about personal safety, online/cell phone safety, and sexual abuse prevention. Our agency is committed to using what we have learned in our 30+ years of case management of missing and exploited children to empower our audiences to walk around smart and not scared. This presentation is designed for professionals, but parents will also benefit from the various replicable safety tools.
1. Recognize the myths that commonly surround personal safety for children including the Stranger Danger myth.
2. Identify reasons that personal safety education should INCREASE at puberty instead of decrease.
3. Each attendee will be able to apply at least three of the best practices for prevention with the families they serve.
Zero Abuse Project is a 501(c)(3) organization that is committed to the elimination of child sexual abuse. Our programs are designed to provide training and education to professionals and students, and to help transform institutions to effectively prevent, recognize and respond to child sexual abuse.
