Salem Public Library Hosting Child Sexual Abuse Prevention TrainingKevin Hays Salem-News.com
The training is titled “Recognizing Child Molesters - A New Approach to Protecting Children”.
(SALEM) - Many girls and boys will be sexually abused prior to their 18th birthday.
The offenders will typically be someone they already know - perhaps a relative, friend, neighbor or one of the many volunteers and professionals who come in contact with them every day.
Few offenders are caught because they work just as hard deceiving adults as they do seducing and silencing their child victims.
The Salem-Keizer School District is hosting a sex abuse prevention training on Tuesday to help parents keep their children safe from becoming a victim of sexual abuse.
Workshop topics include:
Presenters include representatives from the Marion County District Attorney’s Office, Salem & Keizer Police Departments, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Salem-Keizer School District, Liberty House and Willamette ESD.
The workshop will include video-taped interviews with convicted sex offenders and graphic discussions about sex crimes against children.
Participants with a personal history of abuse should have support people available. Children and teens may NOT attend the workshop.
Child care will not be provided.
The workshop will be Tuesday at 6:00 PM at Salem Public Library in Louck's Lecture Hall.
