Prevention Education

Protecting Children Through Prevention.

Statistics show that 95% of sexual abuse is preventable through education. Educating adults and children is the most effective way to combat sexual abuse. While sexual abuse is never a comfortable topic to talk about at any age, understanding the issue and learning how to prevent it is critically important. Trees of Hope has educated thousands of people through our in-person and online prevention workshops over the past several years.

Onsite Prevention Workshops

Trees of Hope Sexual Abuse Prevention and Healing

Our two-hour onsite prevention workshop covers the following important and practical topics for keeping children safe from sexual abuse:

  • What constitutes contact and non-contact and sexual abuse.

  • What the grooming process looks like.

  • Behavioral and physical symptoms of sexual abuse too look out for.

  • The link between sexual abuse and pornography.

  • How to open the door to honest conversations with children.

  • How to get help if you believe a child is being sexually abused.

Online Prevention Workshop

Originally prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now offering our prevention workshop in an online format with teachers, Nicole Escobar and Joan Dominguez. Parents, caregivers, teachers, or anyone who desires to protect the vulnerable can complete the online workshop to learn about sexual abuse and how to better protect the ones they love and/or care for. The workshop is offered for a cost of $25, which includes a physical copy of the Rise Magazine that will be mailed to online workshop registrants.
