Children Can't Protect Themselves... It's Your Job
Sexual abuse is a major health hazard that affects at least fifty-seven percent of our children. While there is no action that is guaranteed to protect children from sexual abuse, there are steps adults can take to decrease the likelihood of abuse. In order to protect children, adults must become educated about child sexual abuse. Learn how by reading our booklet "Children Can't Protect Themselves: It's Your Job," and scheduling a specially developed training that goes along with the manual. (This booklet is also available in Spanish.)
To obtain a print copy of this publication, or if you are interested in scheduling a training provided to a group of adults you know please contact
