Child safety is a topic that has the potential to create a lot of fear and anxiety in the hearts and minds of parents and educators. Everywhere you turn there are reports of abuse in places that are supposed to be safe, concerns about aggressive behavior in children, and stories of human trafficking.
Child safety doesn't have to be a scary topic!
Research shows that one of the most important protective factors in preventing child abuse is the support of adults in the child's life. The Child Safety Collaborative exists as a resource for schools, organizations, and individuals to build up the skills they need to show up as a supportive adult in the lives of the children they interact with on a daily basis.
I'm a Momma, PhD candidate, child safety expert, former special educator, and survivor of childhood abuse myself. I founded The Child Safety Collaborative to equip grown-ups as they promote child safety and positive behavior in their own home and organization. Through my research and work with leading safety organizations I have learned that the development of social, emotional, and physical safety must be taught and practiced. I know creating a safer world for my child, and every child, involves taking intentional action, and the collaborative is here to help you learn to do just that.
The Child Safety Collaborative brings a wide array of expertise to the table related to education, psychology, and professional development that combine to bring you high quality, individualized services.
Call me today for a free consultation about how I can help your family or organization take intentional action to protect the children in your life.
