Preventing Abuse in City Programs

Preventing Abuse in City Programs

We know you strive to not only provide basic services to your citizens, but comprehensive programs for children, youth, families, adults, and seniors. While all of your programs require monitoring and supervision – child, youth, and senior programs can bring unique risks. Your management and staff must consider not only the participants’ physical safety but also their safety against sexual and physical abuse.

Keeping Your Programs Safe from Sexual Abuse: A Training for Parks and Recreation Programming

Please join Praesidium’s Lindsay Bond and Jamie Fray as we discuss current trends in abuse prevention for municipalities and parks and recreation programming. The training will cover:

  • Trends in verdicts from recent years of child sexual abuse cases
  • How adult to youth abuse occurs and where it occurs
  • Trends on where youth to youth incidents occur
  • How to prevent youth to youth abuse
  • How to strengthen reporting procedures
  • Tangible actions you can take to protect your organization and those in your care

Who Should Attend?

  • HR Personnel
  • Risk Managers
  • City Attorneys
  • Park and Rec Staff

This training was eye-opening and relevant to our program and services. I will make changes to our contracts, screening process, and programming based on what I learned at the seminar. The subject matter was tough, but vital to ensuring that my program is doing everything we can to protect those we serve.
