The Family Resource Center of Gordon County is pleased to offer this important training to the public. Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children is a prevention training workshop designed to educate adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with a serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.
Learn how to minimize opportunity, talk about it, recognize the signs, and react responsibly in this 2.5 hour, nationally recognized training designed to teach the facts so that our community can protect our children from sexual abuse.
This workshop is put on by an authorized facilitator. The class focuses on a compelling DVD that consists of testimonies from several courageous individuals that were victims of child sexual abuse and, as adults, are working hard to break the cycle of abuse. During the workshop, each participant will receive a workbook that complements the DVD.
This workshop is great for anyone who wants to combat childhood sexual abuse in Gordon County and beyond.
Classes are offered the third Wednesday of every month. We offer a morning session from 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and an evening session from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Classes are free to attend, but an RSVP is required. Classes begin January 20, 2016.
We are also happy to come and provide training to your organization, community group, church group, or any other group. Call us at 706-625-3311 to schedule an event.
