Training set to prevent childhood sexual abuse

A free training to prevent childhood sexual abuse is being offered to all members of the community. “Protecting Your Children: Advice From Child Molesters” will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Pine Ridge Elementary in Birdseye. Refreshments, including a free nacho bar, will be provided.

The training will be facilitated by local law enforcement investigators and Southwestern Indiana Child Advocacy Center Coalition, in partnership with Dubois County Court-Appointed Special Advocate. Anyone who wants to keep the children in their lives safe will benefit from this training.

The training curriculum was developed by Cory Jewell Jensen, M.S., who has spent nearly 30 years working with and interviewing sex offenders and shares her research nationally with law enforcement, child abuse prevention groups and parents.

Reservations may be made by calling or texting Jensen at 812-639-0143.
