The rising incidents involving violence against children, especially child sexual abuse can feel overwhelming for adults who are entrusted to protect and care for them. Often, this sense of being overwhelmed exists because of the lack of information about ways to protect our children. Educating and equipping ourselves with the necessary knowledge and skill is the first step towards creating safer environments for children.
This one-day introductory workshop focuses of the prevention of child sexual abuse.
The workshop will begin by providing participants with a space to understand and explore the essence of child rights, especially a child’s right to protection.
Next, participants will learn about what constitutes child sexual abuse.
• Is it just rape?
• Are there other acts that fall within the definition of child sexual abuse?
• Are girls the only ones affected by this? Or are boys vulnerable to abuse as well?
Through this process, participants will also learn about the processes, nuances and dynamics involved in child sexual abuse. Having understood the processes involved when child sexual abuse happens, participants will then briefly explore some useful skills to have in order to be able to help a child who is facing sexual abuse.
• How do you talk to the child?
• What can you do if a child shares that he/she is being sexually abused?
These are some questions that we will try to answer.
As this is an introductory workshop, the sessions will introduce participants to the issue. There will be more areas and information to explore. Anyone who is interested to empower themselves further, can look forward to signing up for a more in depth workshop at a later date upon completion of this session.
