You can prevent child abuse. We’ll teach you how.
We'll equip you, your children, your school, and/or your organization to prevent child abuse.
Statistically, 60% of child abuse goes unreported. So, for every 4 children who get help, there are 6 who don't. And that's unacceptable. So, we're equipping the people of Smith County to recognize, report, and prevent abuse:
Our Internet Safety Workshop, How to Protect Your Child guide, and Parent Center community resource directory equip parents with the knowledge, tools, and support they need to protect their kids.
Not sure what constitutes "child abuse," which signs & symptoms typically accompany child abuse, or what to do when you recognize child abuse? These resources answer those questions and more. And as the name suggests, this training is, in fact, for everyone – including you.
Prevention Training Testimonial
“Whitehouse ISD is honored to partner with the Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County to be a Trauma-Informed District. Our staff are now better prepared to recognize and respond to students impacted by traumatic stress, provide the tools to cope with difficult situations, and create an underlying culture of respect and understanding.”
— Christopher Moran, Ed.D.
