PREVENTION OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE: THEORY-BASED PRIMARY PREVENTION
Aug.4th pre lunch and mandatoty

Child sexual abuse is a multifaceted problem that requires a holistic response. Preventing child sexual abuse requires at least a two-fold focus, primary prevention that tries to reach all children and secondary prevention that focuses on populations at risk. This half-day seminar will present the basic theory supporting primary prevention with examples of some best-practices. These elements can then be used for secondary prevention when there is an understanding of which aspects of populations are at-risk and how to use which elements for these at-risk aspects.

 PERSONAL SAFETY EDUCATION – AN INTRODUCTION Aug.4th post lunch

With the objective of empowering  primary school going age  children to safeguard themselves against CSA, the workshop on CSA prevention through Personal Safety Education  is to provide  participants with an understanding of  age-appropriate  information and   the accompanying   non-threatening methods to convey it while utilizing   a variety of resources developed specifically for this purpose 


PREVENTION OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE: DEALING WITH SEXUAL MISBEHAVIORS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN 1 day
Children behave sexually for several reasons, from curiosity to responses due to abuse. Most sexual misbehavior is common and normal. When adults respond to these behaviors appropriately, children learn appropriate behaviors. Unfortunately, so many common sexual misbehavior is responded to in ways that could accelerate normal behavior into abuse of other children. These sessions will look at practical ideas to respond to children with sexual misbehavior issues for healthy sexual development.
PREVENTION OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE: WORKING WITH OUR BOYS 1 day
Prevention tends to focus on protection from victimization, with much less on preventing the development of sex offenders. This session will look at the Indian boy and the socio-cultural factors that work against him. What pressure does patriarchy place on boys? How could boys respond to the fact that so much focus and effort is placed on helping girls? The purpose of the session is to pose questions for critical inquiry in order to increase our understanding of the perceived environment of boys so that we can better support their positive development. The best way to prevent child sexual abuse is to create a world where children do not develop into adult offenders.
