Education and Prevention

    The Children’s Assessment Center’s (CAC) Education Program goal is to increase professionals’ knowledge and raise community awareness by providing quality and informative trainings and prevention programs addressing child sexual abuse and related topics.

The CAC’s Training Program is designed to help professionals and community members: 1) identify the signs and symptoms of sexual abuse, 2) report abuse in accordance with Texas laws, 3) provide the best services to children and families addressing trauma, and 4) prevent child sexual abuse.

Child Abuse Prevention is more than providing safety programs to children; it must include adults. The CAC works to protect children through educating adults on ways to identify, respond, and react appropriately to prevent child abuse.  In addition, The CAC provides evidence-based and evidence-informed prevention education programs for children and youth from all types of abuse and victimization.
