E-book tackles abuse
Home and Family Counselling has been providing counselling care to Aucklanders for 117 years. Link to their recently published e-book on child abuse to gain insights into how to deal with establishing child protection measures within the family – includes examples for various age groups.
Adults who are willing to tackle the topic of sexual abuse and want to learn how to discuss this with their children will find this book invaluable. Here is the opportunity for Parents, Educators and Caregivers to learn about how they can be more aware of their responsibility to keep children safe, as well as ideas about how their children can develop skills to use in their relationships with people.
This book offers ideas about how families can foster an environment where children trust they can talk openly about what happens to them, and gives suggestions about how to do this. It also explains how younger children need simple and repetitive education, at an age-appropriate level, and gives ideas about how to do this.
For the older child, there is the concept of a ‘Partnership Approach’ where adults and children discuss their ideas and work together deciding on strategies about keeping safe.
At each stage of their growing up, a child needs to have easily understood messages about their parents or guardians role as well as their own capabilities for keeping safe from sexual abuse.
