Diocesan child sexual abuse prevention training begins


KANSAS CITY - Over the next year, the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph plans to host more than 70 sessions of "Protecting God's Children," a program designed to prevent child sexual abuse. The program identifies the warning signs of abuse (see story in The Catholic Key, Sept. 20, page 3), teaches strategies for maintaining safe environments for children, and teaches participants how to discuss sexual abuse with children and how to train children to protect themselves.

The three-hour sessions include a series of videotaped statements from child abuse perpetrators, victims and parents.

The diocese is requiring all employees and volunteers who work with children to complete the training and participate in a continuing Web-based education program.

Scheduling of the program, "Protecting God's Children" throughout the 27-county diocese will be in three phases. Phase I begins Oct. 8 and the schedule is printed below. Phase II will begin Jan. 20, 2003, and Phase III begins in the fall of 2003.
