 End Child Sex Trafficking & Sexual Violence in Georgia: A School-Based Prevention Program

This is a friendly reminder that Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta continues to offer all school professionals the free online 1-hour training course on child sex trafficking and other sexual violence, “End Child Sex Trafficking & Sexual Violence in Georgia: A School-Based Prevention Program.”  This training meets the requirements for training teachers outlined in SB 401.  The training is relevant to teachers, administrators, counselors and psychologists, nurses and support staff.

Here are instructions for users:

To view the module as an individual, simply click the link and work through the process. After completing the evaluation at the end, a certificate will be available for printing. If participants are watching in a group, one person will sign in and complete the demographics and pre-training survey for themselves and then show the video to the group. After watching the module, the lead for the group should send the link to all those who watched. Each person can then complete the demographics and survey process for themselves and receive their own certificate. There is no longer a need to send rosters to us. However, it is imperative that each person who watches follows the link as that will be the only way we have a record of attendance. Keeping track of attendees and receiving their evaluation is critical to help us design the best training possible, make edits as needed, and be able to accurately report on our work to our funders in order to maintain long-term support for the program.
