Stewards of Children Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training. 

FREE program

Thank you to the Ohio Children's Trust fund for enabling us to offer this training at no cost.

Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face, with the most serious array of consequences. In fact, 1 in 10 children will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. 

This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent, or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you know and care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing, child sexual abuse. It's going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not - unless you stop it from happening. And the good news is, it can be stopped.

Stewards of Children® is an evidence-informed prevention solution that increases knowledge, improves attitudes, and changes child protective behaviors.  It offers practical prevention training with a conversational, real-world approach.

Why is this program different?

Stewards of Children uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children.

You'll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You'll meet experts who work with children and families, and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents, themselves.

QPR Suicide Prevention

Mar 13, 2018

Loss of a loved one, friend, neighbor, colleague, or other acquaintance to suicide is devastating.  Importantly, there is hope and help for persons contemplating suicide, and you can help others in need.  QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. 

According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a Gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

The QPR Gatekeeper Training Program is NREPP approved evidenced based training. 

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper, trainees receive background on the prevalence of suicide and learn to

  • recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • know how to offer hope
  • know how to get help and save a life

This training is free and provides 3 CEUs.  Click here for more information and to register:
