Types of CAP Adult Workshops available to schools and communities are:
Child Assault Prevention Adult Workshops
Staff In-service – is a 1 hour in-service given by CAP facilitators for all staff persons involved in a school. The training includes an overview of assault, a detailed explanation of the classroom workshop, information on identification of abused persons, active listening guidelines for dealing with a child in crisis, community resources and referrals for reporting abuse, and legal rights and responsibilities of staff members who report abuse or neglect.
Parent Workshop – is a 1 hour program given by CAP facilitators which includes an overview of assault, information on identification of abused children, community resources and legal responsibilities for reporting abuse or neglect for adults in the community. The training emphasizes communication skills for discussing assault with children and effective responses for handling a child in crisis. Parents are given a detailed description of the classroom workshops.
CAP’S Bullying Prevention Program– a workshop which considers the causes of peer to peer violence and bullying behaviors. The teacher/staff in-service helps staff recognize the effects of bullying behaviors and address staff responsibility for appropriate intervention, highlighting schools need for effective and comprehensive anti-bullying prevention. Parent workshops enable parents to proactively advocate for their children who are bullied and take responsibility if their children are bullying others. The workshops will discuss what communities can do to design and implement effective strategies to intervene and prevent bullying?. The latest research will be cited and resource and informational materials distributed.
Cyber Empowerment – a 2 hour workshop that will better equip staff and parents to prevent electronic bullying, abuse and exploitation of children. This workshop is the result of a collaboration with the NJ State Police who have been working with the Attorney General’s office to provide cyber awareness throughout New Jersey. The State Police support CAP’s efforts as we share this information to the local school district and communities.
