Stewards of Children Training
Friday March 16th at Lampion Center, 1:00-3:30 pm
This is a free training to help all adults know how to reduce, prevent and respond to child sexual abuse.
Our evidence-informed training influences community behavior change! 1 out of 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. Chances are, someone you know has been impacted. Research shows that people who are sexually violated as children are far more likely to experience psychological problems often lasting into adulthood, including post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, suicide, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout and relationship problems. Learning the facts about childhood sexual abuse helps prevent it. Talking about it helps prevent it. Getting involved helps prevent it. The truth is, if childhood sexual abuse can be prevented, it can be stopped. That’s why we exist, to empower adults through awareness and educational programs to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Every year thousands of families walk through our doors to begin their journey in the offices of our highly skilled therapists. If you could walk down our halls and learn about the stories unfolding behind these doors, you would learn about marriages previously coming apart at the seams that are now stronger than ever. You might hear the laughter of children, who with the help of their therapist found the courage to face their fears, which were all too real. You could find an older man who is grieving the loss of his wife, but who is, with the help of his therapist, making it through each new day, and finding hope along the way.
You would find numerous stories, some very different than your own, but some perhaps very similar. The people behind these doors are children, adults, and families who are finding help for issues in their lives. Lampion Center makes a difference daily in our community because we are making a difference daily in the lives of those who live here.
