We teach adults through powerful and positive one-hour or longer sessions. Our trained volunteer presenters include clinicians, committed citizens, and survivors. We teach about abuser behaviors and 10 protection steps that empower kids, bring greater safety, and lower risk.
We teach at youth organizations, businesses, churches, schools, PTAs, service clubs, or community settings. Adults learn about abuser behaviors, situations where children are vulnerable, and how to give kids words, body authority, and body safety skills. They’re prepared to listen for subtle cues children give when someone is making them uncomfortable, and gain steps to watchfully supervise kids and their relationships. Finally, we cover where to call with concerns or to report abuse.
Stand to Protect also guides organizations to shape safer environments through policies, supervision practices, and more. All training and other resources are FREE, through sponsorship of this program by Dakota Medical Foundation. Email your training request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 701-271-0263.
We are pleased to train in small settings – a single department – and larger settings of entire organizations.
