(May 16, 2014) Allegations of child sexual abuse can be devastating to any organization, their staff, volunteers and community. In a newly released video training program, Glatfelter Insurance Group takes an honest look at child sexual abuse in a variety of settings that provides services to children and teenagers, such as schools, camps, firehouses, parks and recreation programs and faith-based organizations.
Let’s Talk: Preventing Child Abuse in Your Organization, offers considerations to help prevent child sexual abuse, including:
Specific behaviors that can be taken to protect an organization from false allegations.
Environmental adjustments that can be made to increase surveillance and transparency when working with youth.
Ways to increase awareness of behaviors that indicate another individual may be an abuser.
Glatfelter Public Practice encourages volunteers and employees to become familiar with and utilize the organization’s abuse prevention policies and procedures. This video is offered as added support to orientation and ongoing training programs. This resource is available free to clients.
