About the workshops
A society’s integrity and worth is not based on whether cases of sexual violence against children happen. Instead it is based on the acceptance of the possibilities of occurrence and proactive steps taken to both safeguard and respond in a timely and appropriate way to ensure that its children may benefit from its caring and foresight to truly have the right to be safe all the time, everywhere.

Designing a holistic child protection system for primary schools.(K- Std.5) Child abuse does not happen all by itself. There are many factors involved. When working to protect young children each of these elements need to come together to form a holistic and coordinated program. During these 2 days we will discuss causes of child abuse with a focus on sexual abuse, working with students, working with parents, training teachers, developing appropriate materials, understanding the physical boundaries of a school, understanding child development that includes sexual development, and knowing your community resources for help.

Interviewing children. Abuse can be traumatic for children. Sometimes children cope with the abuse but are traumatized when adults discover it. So talking about what happened can be as or even more traumatic than what we consider as abuse. This 1-day session will go through some of the major elements of interviewing, both for court and for therapeutic purposes, in a child-friendly yet effective manner.

Addressing children and youth with sexual behavior problems
The causes of sexual abusive behaviors are varied and include both victimization experience and learning from family and community behaviors and culture. Regardless of the cause, however, children abusing children is a reality today. If the public and communities remain reluctant to acknowledge the existence of children with abusive sexual behaviors, treatment options to stop the sexual offending of these children at early ages will also remain uncertain. With this information, participants can design and implement effective services for prevention and treatment that focus on the individual, family, community and culture.
