Over 900 people in our diocese have taken the Safeguarding training learning to recognize the boundary violations that could result in child abuse, adult sexual exploitation or on the job sexual harassment. This notice is to remind each church, mission and school that these training modules may be accessed on-line.
If a local administrator has not yet been appointed for your church, mission or school, please contact The Rev. Deacon Kathey Crowe, our Diocesan Safeguarding Trainer and she can give your local administrator access to the Safeguarding Modules who will then be able to provide access to others that need the training recertification. Kathey’s email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now Some Exciting New Additions to Safeguarding On-Line: In addition to the Safeguarding God’s Children from Child Abuse and Safeguarding God’s People from Sexual Exploitation, The Church Pension Group along with their consultant, Praesidium, has released these new training modules for your use:
Abuse Risk Management for Occasional Volunteers:
This module shows volunteers how molesters operate, the devastating effects of abuse, and the specific steps volunteers can take to prevent abuse and false allegations of abuse. These training modules are particularly helpful for those who volunteers for Vacation Bible School or Camps.
Abuse Prevention Refresher
Your prior training and on-the-job experience has given you a great foundation for preventing child sexual abuse. In Advanced Abuse Prevention you'll build on this knowledge and learn new information about:
Preventing Sexual Harassment for Workers (those without a supervisory role)
This provides training for employees, volunteers, clergy, managers, supervisors, and church leaders about Sexual Harassment.
Preventing Sexual Harassment for Managers and Supervisors (those with supervisory, management or vestry responsibilities should take both modules – for workers and managers and supervisors)
This training provides specific additional information for clergy, managers, supervisors, and church leaders on Sexual Harassment. Both courses will need to be completed by specific groups mentioned.
