I hope you will join Dr. Amy Tiemann and me for a free live question and answer session on Tuesday December 7th, from 4-5 PM PST (7-8 PM EST) (in North America). We will be discussing our Full Circle Safety Program, which addresses what K-12 educators, administrators, and school staff need to know to protect young people from sexual abuse and human trafficking. Parents and other caring adults are also welcome to join us.

In addition to answering your questions, we will discuss myths about these issues and how to overcome them. You will learn what the first steps are that people can take to become more informed, aware, and ready to respond to potential safety problems.

The Full Circle Safety Program provides training for K-12 educators, administrators and staff, on the important topics “Sexual Abuse Prevention for K-12 Educators” and “What K-12 Educators Need to Know about Human Trafficking.”

These problems affect communities of every size, cultural and racial makeup, and socioeconomic status.

“Full Circle Safety” is about everyone in a school working together to identify the warning signs of abuse, and get students the help they need, acting in a caring, trauma-informed way. A teacher, a coach, a bus driver, or a late-day caregiver will have different perspectives, and the more informed and aware teachers and staff are, the more empowered they will be to recognize problems and get help.

In the US, these trainings satisfy some state-mandated professional training requirements, such as Erin’s Law—and are the only trainings of their kind that are built on a foundation of Kidpower skills. The two Full Circle Safety Trainings are short by design, 1 hour each, and are designed to be scalable and adopted by entire schools or school districts.

In addition to being an exceptional presenter, Dr. Amy is my co-author for our book Doing Right by Our Kids: Protecting Child Safety at All Levels, which is being used by educators, parents, and other caring adults worldwide to protect young people from harm and create a culture of safety in their schools, homes, and communities.

Here’s where to: REGISTER NOW! We hope to see you on December 7, and encourage you to share this opportunity with others. We will be recording this session and making it available.

Thank you for your commitment to protecting out kids!
