Sexual abuse and prevention is an uncomfortable subject. Unfortunately, it’s also something we parents have to think about, as we constantly entrust the safety of our kids to schools, camp, religious institutions, sports, babysitters, and other care settings. How can you know whether your child is in an environment that takes sexual abuse prevention seriously? What are the key questions to ask and red flags to look for, and how do you feel confident raising this issue in the first place? What can you do to teach your child to identify risks and speak up with their concerns? How do you make your child a “tough target”?

Join Meira Ellias, a mom, Clinical Social Worker, and Psychotherapist with deep experience in sexual abuse trauma and prevention, for a candid workshop with the goal of empowering parents with education and real-life tools to handle these difficult issues.
