What the Research Tells Us

A randomized-controlled study of teachers in three states published in the Journal of Child Sexual Abuse (2019) has documented, at the highest levels of statistical significance:

  • Increased learner knowledge about child sexual abuse and its prevention;
  • Ability to identify boundary-violating behaviors that if left unchecked could lead to sexual misconduct or abuse; and
  • Confidence and willingness to report suspected or disclosed cases. 

98.4% of learners indicated they would recommend the course to their colleagues. 

Who Should Take the Course?

Public and private school teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, counselors, school resource officers, coaches, office personnel, transportation providers, food service workers, security guards, and custodians, as well as parents, school volunteers, and Parent Teacher Organization and School Committee members will all benefit from this course. 

“I have been teaching for nearly 30 years and this is one of, if not the, best trainings videos I have ever sat through. It was visually beautiful and well presented. The use of two varied ‘real life’ situations was excellent because it brought the teachers through the same learning process we as teachers are going through. I liked that you stopped and asked us questions periodically. I also liked that you had options for learning more about certain terms. I really thought the beginning video was wonderful. It was power and emotional. Excellent work!!!”

“Engaging format and information presented in a non-threatening, fact-based manner.”

“I appreciated learning the fact-based information; the percentage of children abused was much higher than I expected. I liked that this training gave you the tools to know how to approach the situation and feel confident to help a student in need.”

“Very engaging and well produced and clear.”

“Hearing the reasonable and understandable self-doubt vocalized by the male teacher who failed to trust his gut and report or monitor behavior that seemed inappropriate to him.”

“The most informative aspect was learning how prevalent sexual abuse is.  I did not think it was nearly that common, and 10% in schools is shockingly high to me. While sad that it had to happen, it was good to hear about David’s experience, why he didn’t report, and why he now would.  It was great going through all the reasons why he didn’t report and helping us see why they were wrong.”

“It was extremely organized and easy to follow. It was very clear and kept me listening.”

“I think this type of training should be seen by EVERYONE who will be working with children.  I liked how the giving of gifts was incorporated into this training, and how abuse can start with something as simple as this and then escalate.  This training allows me to be more hyper vigilant when it comes to recognizing how something small can turn into something much larger.”

“I liked how the training outlined the importance of letting teachers know that they will not be held accountable if they make an inaccurate assumption about sexual abuse.”

“I am a former state police Detective with 25 years’ experience with child and adult sex crimes, homicide, suicide, and narcotics, witnesses and suspects. I like that you are teaching that ‘perps’ look like everyone else and that their behavior is friendly and they appear to be trustworthy until you understand the signs. I like to say ‘pedophiles don’t go to the playground and kick little kids’. They groom, compliment, gain trust, plan, scheme and manipulate. I like that you covered why some may not want to report. I like the fact that you explain kids don’t lie about abuse and to not ask too many questions so you don’t interfere with the investigation or taint evidence. I like that it is explained reporting is to protect students and by not taking reports seriously schools are potentially protecting the perp. I like that you said to have a Code of Conduct and explained some teens may be ashamed to report or deny any sexual abuse, described a power differential in age, power or development.””

“I like that it stresses PREVENTION, not reaction.”

“I like that it clearly explained the signs of sexual abuse, and what one can do if they notice that something is wrong with a student or if that student trust you enough to let you know what is happening to him/her one must report to the correct personnel. And that child abuse is everyone’s business so that children can get helped.”

“It gave real life examples that you would have never thought about.”

“I liked the two teacher examples and that it was interactive as well.”

“A great training for people with little to no knowledge base on this very important topic. It also serves well as a good reminder to those of us already trained, the importance of being vigilant and not fearing reporting.”

“I liked that it explored educators’ fears about reporting.”

“It helped me think about how I should trust my instincts with other adults. If I don’t feel comfortable about an interaction that I observe between another adult and a child, then I should speak up.”

“This training made me more aware of just how much abuse is unknown to us. Also just how much trauma it causes the children and how highly it affects their learning, as well as their mental and physical health.”

“The training gave me a better understanding of how to support my students who share with me that they were sexually abused. It was very informative and specific.”

“How it described what mindset you should/should not have if you see something suspicious and also how it demonstrated that you should compose yourself and stay calm if a child shares something with you, even though it can be really shocking to hear.  It put the kids’ needs before anybody else.”

“I liked the self-paced format that allowed you to select ‘previous’ page if you needed to hear something again.  I also liked the scheduled ‘check-ins’ throughout the lessons to help monitor my understanding of the content.”

“I liked that it brought awareness to a very overlooked crisis.”

“The format was very engaging and user-friendly! I appreciated the scenarios and exploring the thinking of different approaches and beliefs/ biases. I also appreciated the statistics and data.”

“I thought the realistic anecdotes were especially helpful because I think some people might not realize that they are missing signs of sexual abuse. The story was very realistic and the actions of the teacher might reflect what many teachers feel when they see behavior they are not sure is inappropriate.”

“I like the way that it was presented. It offered important information in a way that was easy to understand and approach. Because it was interactive it made the presentation easier to engage with rather than just a lot of information being presented and becoming overwhelming.”

“I liked that it put everyone on the same page in terms of naming a problem and setting clear expectations and boundaries. Just requiring employees to complete a training like this is a solid first step in discouraging boundary violations that could lead to abuse.”
