Risk Managers Roundtable: Sexual Abuse Awareness Training

The single most important step an agency can take to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse is training staff and volunteers to understand the problem. When staff members and volunteers have an awareness of the basic characteristics of a sexual abuser, the process by which an abuser picks and prepare a child for abuse, and key indicators of child sexual abuse, they are better equipped to recognize and prevent abuse in youth programs. We cannot reduce a risk we do not understand. The roundtable will be presented by MinistrySafe Director and attorney Kimberlee Norris. MinistrySafe’s mission is to protect children and those who serve them. After decades of litigating sexual abuse cases and providing consultation and crisis management to ministries, MinistrySafe was founded to help ministries meet legal standards of care and reduce the risk of child sexual abuse. *This will be an in-person training as well as a live webcast. *There will only be one Risk Managers Roundtable date scheduled in this quarter.
