The Child Safeguarding Policy Guide-Book Review-Litfuse Tour
About the book
The Child Safeguarding Policy for Churches and Ministries (New Growth Press, August 2017)
Churches have always sought to be a safe haven for children and families, but many today are dealing with the tragic reality of child sexual abuse.
This handbook, authored and edited by a multidisciplinary team of child abuse experts, is designed for use by a group th
viat will be formulating policies and procedures to protect children and deal with possible child abuse in their ministry, school, and/or church. Working through this book will assist churches and ministries to assess their current child abuse polices and then guide them through each step they need to take to address the safety of children under their care. It will cover vitally important topics including:
—Protecting the children in a Christian environment from child abuse
—The warning signs of child abuse
—Crafting and implement a child protection policy
—Responding to abuse allegations
—Caring for victims of child abuse
—The legal implications and requirements for churches and Christian ministries
Written by a GRACE team with multi-disciplinary knowledge, headed by Boz Tchividjian, a lawyer and former child abuse prosecutor, this handbook will be an invaluable resource to Christians who are seeking to educate themselves and others about child abuse and how to best protect the little ones under their care.
And I thought
The Child Safeguaring Policy Guide is a must read for anyone in ministry.
If your a parent don't discount this book
Because you need to 'make sure' that your child care, preschool, day school or even church ministry is taking steps to insure the safety of your child.
I wish that I had this book a few years ago when I founded a non-profit ministry for at-risk and incarcerated teens. After working in full-time ministry I spent a few years working in a pre-school. Although
Our state mandates continuing education training and the school where I worked made great strides to provide adequate training I feel like I learned alot from this book.
In hindsight I have absorbed much needed knowledge between the pages of this book.
This book has been endorsed by many professionals in ministry as well as secular programs.
Victor Vieth the director of a Child Protection Training Center.
Reknowed author Mary DeMuth (Author of over 30 books including Finding Hope and Healing after Sexual Abuse.
And Anne Graham Lotz to name a few.
The topics in the book include:
Defining Abuse, Indicators, Impact, Sexual Behaviors,
Routine Protective Measures and many more.
This is a book filled with knowledge and information. It is set up so that management of children's programs can use the resources to manage programs and to train workers.
The Child Safeguarding Policy is a must read for anyone working with children. Especially administrators.
Parents check this one out too for the valuable information within these pages.
I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.
