Being Your Child’s Advocate
Sexual abuse is a phenomenon that affects all communities; it does not discriminate. Parents innately want to provide for the safety of their children, and having to take the specter of sexual abuse into account can make the challenging logistics of child-raising overwhelming. Many people are plagued by questions that they cannot answer, such as:
- — Who does this type of thing?
- — What effects does it have on children in the short and long-term?
- — When should I reach out for support?
- — Where is my child most vulnerable?
- — Why is it so difficult to raise a child safely in this world?
- — What can I do to keep my child safe?
Good Secrets, Bad Secrets is a two-session seminar that offers answers to all of these questions. Parents will learn a wealth of information about:
- — Sexual abuse
- — Effects of sexual abuse on its victim
- — The profile of the abuser
- — Overcoming obstacles to action
- — How to talk to children about sexual abuse
- — A basic safety curriculum for children of all ages
Being informed and educated is the key to handling this issue, achieving peace of mind, and becoming an effective force against the problem of sexual abuse.
The seminar is offered by Rabbi Tanchum Burton, MSW. In addition to his own private practice, Rabbi Burton was the therapeutic director of the Netsach program for at-risk teens and a co-facilitator of forensic therapy groups for religious sexual offenders at Shalom Banayich in Bnei Brak.
Participants will receive a handbook for review of the material covered in the seminar.
