At Prevent Child Abuse Vermont, we take a comprehensive, health-based approach to prevention. All of our sexual abuse programming emphasizes:
The prevention of sexual abuse is complicated because there are so many cultural and historical variables at play. At the same time, it is encouraging to note that there are some simple steps we can begin taking immediately that will help protect children from this form of abuse. We want to help children enjoy healthy and happy relationships – this also means raising children in ways that will help them avoid developing any abusive behaviors.
