Becoming a More Resilient Parent

Becoming a More Resilient Parent

Resilience is often thought of as the ability to bounce back from a tough time. In this training we’re going to look at resilience as bouncing forward. Parents frequently model resilience for their children. Our actions – no matter how small – can have a big impact on our children and ultimately, on our communities. This training lasts 2 hours and can be presented virtually or in-person.

Darkness to Light PCA Cobb

Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children®

One in 10 children will be the victim of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. There is an estimated 42 million adult survivors of sexual abuse living in the United States today. Child sexual abuse takes many forms, and they aren’t just physical.

Stewards of Children® is an impactful two-hour training that teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. This training can be virtual or in-person.

_Mandated Reporter Training

Mandated Reporter Training

Child serving professionals and volunteers may suspect child abuse or have a child disclose abuse to them through their work with children. However, barriers such as fear of reporting, the inability to recognize all forms of child maltreatment, and vague organizational policies may prevent professionals from making a report of child maltreatment. This 90-minute training can be virtual or in-person.
