Darkness to Light Debuts Empowering New Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training Program Contemporary Version of Award-Winning Stewards of Children® Program Features New Survivors, New Professional Insights, and New Topics in Child Sexual Abuse Prevention
Darkness to Light (D2L) has launched a redeveloped training program and documentary film designed to teach adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Building on the longstanding success of the original Stewards of Children training, which has reached over 500,000 adults throughout the nation and world, the newest version takes a culturally relevant look at child protection.
The updated Stewards of Children documentary features a new selection of survivor stories, expert guidance, and practical advice as part of a five-step action plan to help adults protect the children in their lives. This evidence-informed training program also includes up-to-date statistics and current topics in child sexual abuse prevention, packaged into a concise, two-hour format. Community Collaborations for Children is pleased to partner with Darkness to Light to offer Stewards of Children training to the Barren River area, available through a facilitator-led session or through a newly improved online learning platform.
“This is a true milestone in the protection of our children,” said D2L President and CEO Jolie Logan. “The revised training and film reflect the insights that have been revealed through more than a decade focused on this issue. Training, awareness and new policy initiatives for youth serving organizations are all helping build a culture to end child sexual abuse.”
The Barren River Community Collaborations for Children is a local network dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Community Action of Southern Kentucky’s facilitators and other trained facilitators in our network are happy to offer the D2L training at no charge for groups that are interested in maintaining environments and protections to reduce the number of child sexual abuse victims in our communities.
There are several D2L trained facilitators in the local area. To arrange a training for groups of 2 or more, contact Nancy H. Rust, Barren River Regional Network Coordinator, Community Collaborations for Children at (270)782-3162 ext. 179.
