Tonight's special guest is Feather Berkower from Colorado, a returning NAASCA family member and a 30-year veteran in child sexual abuse prevention. Using a community-based approach, she has trained well over 100,000 school children, parents and professionals! Her highly-regarded workshop, Parenting Safe Children, empowers adults to keep children safe from sexual abuse. Feather has a way of making difficult topics less scary, and consistently impresses audiences with her knowledge, commitment, and warmth. Parenting Safe Children helped to inspire "Off Limits," a parenting book that will change the way you think about keeping kids safe. "Off Limits" presents easy-to-follow guidelines for making children, homes, and communities off limits to child sexual abusers. Tonight we'll focus on the topic of adult responsibility in protecting children from sexual abuse. Feather says, "I see in my work repeatedly, prevention education focused on children and adults relying on children to protect themselves. It is my fervent belief that although kids can learn to protect themselves with important skills, ultimately it is up to adults to protect kids, not kids to protect themselves." Before founding Parenting Safe Children, Feather managed a regional chapter of the Child Assault Prevention Program, which delivers school-based curricula to protect children and teens from bullying and sexual assault. Feather is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and holds a Master’s of Social Welfare from the University of California, Berkeley. She conducts media interviews, workshops, and private consultations throughout the United States regarding issues of child sexual abuse and safety.
