Chaplains for Children
child abuse and the church: prevention and response
Child Abuse leaves spiritual scars that can be more damaging than any physical scars. Chaplains for Children is a FREE 2-Day training that helps faith and community leaders understand child abuse and neglect and its impact on children and families' faith and spirituality.
Locations include: Southaven, Meridian and Hattiesburg
It covers mandated reporting laws for church leaders, how abuse impacts victims' faith and spirituality, why/how perpetrators target churches to gain access to victims, and gives practical tools to churches on how to protect children in their programs or how to respond when abuse does occur.
The 1-Day ADVANCED seminar in Jackson, MS is for those who have completed the 2-Day Chaplains for Children training. This is a continuation of learning about victim's and their need to heal holistically. It will discuss collaboration with other systems to ensure a victim's needs for justice and healing are met.

"Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
— Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa
