Darkness To Light held three days of workshops here in Massachusetts earlier this week: two days of community awareness training followed by a facilitator training. The days were dense with information and a wonderful opportunity to connect with so many others working on child sexual abuse prevention. Day three was particularly meaningful to me as I led the full-day workshop and became certified as a Facilitator Instructor, able now to "train the trainers" who go out and lead our Stewards Of Children trainings.
I invite you to visit Darkness To Light's web pages at and learn about its mission to educate adults to "prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse."  Stewards Of Children is a 3rd-party evaluated, evidence-based program, winner of the 2007 Crime Prevention Program of the Year by the National Crime Prevention Council, leading the way in turning awareness of CSA into action, changing behaviors, that protect children. We know this program works. I encourage you to take the 2.5 hour training, live or online, and help make your community, and our world, a safer place.


  1. Congratulations on becoming a Trainer Susuan!!

  2. I'm going to look into this--thanks for the information. I'd also like to encourage you to submit this post to THE BLOG CARNIVAL AGAINST CHILD ABUSE, which I founded and maintain. We have another edition coming up at the end of this month. Details are at my blog. Thanks for considering it!
