Children’s Safety Partnership Online Training Launch

As Child Abuse Prevention Month approaches in April, the Maine Department of Education (DOE) is helping to publicize a new way to access training from the Children’s Safety Partnership (CSP), ” Understanding and Responding to Child Sexual Abuse”.

The pandemic has changed everyone’s ability to gather and train together in person. Recognizing that all school personnel are required to complete the one-hour “Understanding and Responding to Child Sexual Abuse” training every four years, the Children’s Safety Partnership, a program of the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault, has developed a fully online version of “Understanding and Responding to Child Sexual Abuse”.

The preference for this training is always for it to be in person, if possible. However, we hope that this version of the online course will provide opportunities for school personnel who may not otherwise have access to the training to be able to complete and comply with it.

The training and all additional materials are available on the Children’s Safety Partnership website for all educators who have already completed the training of trainers with the CSP. Access is intended to be a support for those responsible for providing and/or ensuring that the training is followed. Those who have not taken a train-the-trainer but would like to access the materials can contact the prevention educators at their local sexual assault support center to find out more. This course was designed using the Teachable platform. It provides a content roadmap, while also providing the ability to start and stop when it suits the attendee.

If training facilitators have any questions while delivering or following up on the training, they should contact the prevention educators at their local Sexual Assault Support Center!
