Parent Workshop: Protecting Your Child From Sexual Abuse

Attend a workshop led by Licensed Psychologist Donna Silbert to learn the latest research findings on what actually works to keep children safe. Workshops are based on the most recent academic- and government-funded studies, including expert guidance from the FBI and The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Workshops focus on the most effective safety strategies parents can teach their children to minimize the risk of childhood sexual abuse. Professionals now agree that many of the old safety strategies previously taught are not effective. Current research, in fact, documents that 1 out of 6 boys and 1 out of 4 girls will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. Recent research on perpetrator patterns as well as on children’s developmental and cognitive capacities also suggest that the most effective protective strategies for children are not the traditional ones children have been taught. Armed with specific, common-sense, suggestions, parents report feeling empowered to help their children maintain their safety.

In addition to teaching effective safety strategies, I also address the issue of how parents can help contain their children’s fears even as they discuss the very possibility of a frightening scenario with their children.

Workshops can be arranged for any number of interested people, from an individual, to a small group, to the parent body of a school. For more information contact me at 212-721-1244 or docsilbert@hotmail.com. Learn more about me at http://www.donnasilbert.com/.
