The Traumatic Stress Institute fosters the transformation of organizations and service systems to trauma-informed care (TIC) through the delivery of whole-system consultation, professional training, coaching, and research.

The Penn State tragedy has propelled many organizations to start thinking about what they need to do to protect the children and teens in their care. Adults that sexually abuse or are prone to violate boundaries are drawn to work in youth-serving organizations. At the same time, youth-serving organizations serve our most vulnerable youth that are desperately hungry for adult attention and often do not fully understand appropriate boundaries. The risks inherent in these circumstances make it critical for organizations to think proactively and creatively about system-wide prevention of sexual abuse.

This workshop offers the resources and information needed to begin this safety process.  Workshop attendees will learn the basics of what every youth-serving organization should put into place and, by doing so, strengthen their organization’s capacity to protect children from sexual abuse.
