Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent, or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you know and care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing, child sexual abuse. It’s going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not – unless you stop it from happening. And the good news is, it can be stopped. Stewards of Children is an award-winning program that teaches adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
In case of inclement weather (specifically, if Cabell County schools are closed or release early on February 18), the training will be rescheduled for Feb. 25 at the same time and location.
