Our Prevention Programs Help to Reduce Child Abuse

Our Prevention Programs Help to Reduce Child Abuse

We provide several programs that address child abuse

The programs provided by The Children's Advocacy Center of Central Texas are wide-ranging. Our main focus through these programs is to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, the need for child abuse services. Our programs help to drastically reduce the number of victimized children in our community.

Our programs

We have two programs for child-serving professionals. The first program is Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse. This workshop teaches adults how to recognize the signs and symptoms of:

  • Neglect
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
Participants will learn facts about child abuse and how to recognize physical and behavioral symptoms. Adults in this workshop will also learn how to properly report suspected child abuse. We'll discuss risk factors, the effects of abuse, how to handle disclosures and mandated reporting laws. This workshop is about an hour and is free of charge for all adults.

Our second program is known as the Stewards of Children. The Darkness to Light's "Stewards of Children" workshop teaches adults how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sex abuse. Our participants will:
  • Learn from survivors who have faced child sexual abuse
  • Learn from experts who work with children and families
  • Discover methods they can use to protect children
The "Stewards of Children" workshop is about two hours and is only $10 for any adults interested in learning more about child sex abuse. Call 254-939-2946 now for more information.
