Today I discovered a new offering from Darkness to Light. They have partnered with Kathleen Brooks to offer an internet radio program that can be found here: http://www.ethicalife.com/showlist.asp.
I am so encouraged to see an internet radio show that focuses on raising awareness of childhood sexual abuse. This is a global epidemic and ignoring it will not make it go away. It is uncomfortable to talk about and horrifying to think that it really happens but covering our ears and turning our backs on the problem will not make it go away. The facts are that in Canada, ONE in THREE girls and ONE in FIVE boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. This is unacceptable and there IS something you can do about it. Start talking. Take action. Learn how to prevent, recognize and react responsively.
One of the ways to do this is to educate yourself and I highly recommend you look into a program called ‘Stewards of Children’. For those of you in the National Capitol Region, I am an authorized facilitator and more than happy to set up a workshop. Simply drop me a note and let’s make it happen. To find other locations that can offer this workshop check out Darkness to Light at http://www.darkness2light.org/.
