The Nanny League partnered with Stop the Silence® to develop an on-line training specifically for nannies about CSA prevention and mitigation. For only $35.00, the training will provide you with an overview on the issue of CSA– including trafficking: what it is, what it does, how you can prevent it, how you can detect a problem, and how you can report it.
Child sexual abuse (CSA) and other Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are occurring in pandemic proportions. CSA includes actions from voyeurism to rape. Other ACEs include physical and emotional abuse and other traumatic circumstances for children. CSA usually happens over an extended period of time by someone close to the child. There are at least 42 million adult CSA survivors in the U.S. alone. Given the often grave physical, psychological and social trauma and outcomes of CSA and other ACEs, they affect not only individuals but societies.
Stop the Silence® – A Department of the Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma, a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) organization has a Mission to promote violence-free living by improving the quality of life for individuals on local, national and international levels by sharing and disseminating vital information, improving cross-discipline collaborations, conducting research and trainings, and providing direct professional services, program evaluation, and consulting.
