Learn how to Recognize and Prevent Child Abuse

January 7, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Local residents can learn how to help prevent child sexual assault by joining the Enough Abuse Campaign, a cooperative effort of Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey, Project Self-Sufficiency and the Sussex Warren Partnership to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse.  The community-wide education initiative aims to mobilize adults and communities to prevent child sexual assault by increasing awareness of the warning signs displayed by predators and as well as victims.  Educators are particularly interested in training middle and high school youth, their parents, teachers, administrators, coaches and other youth-serving professionals on how to recognize and prevent child sexual abuse. 

 

Training sessions will be held at Project Self-Sufficiency on Thursdays, January 16th and February 20th, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Project Self-Sufficiency is located at 127 Mill Street in Newton.  Participation is free and open to anyone interested in stemming the tide of child sexual assault, but advance registration is required.  To register, or to find out more about the Enough Abuse campaign, call Project Self-Sufficiency, 973-940-3500.
