This training is for children’s caregivers to prepare them to promote healthy sexuality development for children, as a core activity necessary for child sexual abuse prevention. After providing an overview of the scope of child sexual abuse and introducing key concepts in prevention, this training presents preventive tasks along the development continuum to both support healthy sexuality development and to determine whether sexual behaviors in children are age-appropriate. Participants will learn how to use context to determine when behaviors are inappropriate or harmful, and how to respond to early warning signs in children’s behaviors. The role of safety planning in prevention will be explored, including teaching consent and providing healthy touch. With increased knowledge, confidence and comfort, participants will be able to better recognize and support children’s sexual safety, and will learn how to use safety rules as tools to help keep children and youth safe.
