Upcoming Webinar: Personal Safety for Children with Development Disabilities

There is consistent evidence that children with developmental disabilities are at higher risk for abuse. According to a meta-analysis of findings from studies, children with disabilities are 2.9 time more likely than children without disabilities to be sexually abused (Lund and Vaughn-Jensen, 2012).

This webinar will offer participants the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of risk factors of sexual abuse for individuals with developmental disabilities; accommodations for prevention and intervention; community engagement; and best practices and lessons learned from “Safety Matters”, a practice-informed sexual abuse prevention program for children (ages 7-12) with developmental disabilities.

This webinar has been approved for 2.0 Continuing Education Unit from the Pennsylvania State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapist and Professional Counselors
