Workshop on Child Protection: Enabling Safer Schools
“Please, not at my school” and “please, not my child” are the fervent thoughts of every educator and parent when confronted with the spectre of sexual ‘grooming’. But with the sexual exploitation of minors in the spotlight, even at some of South Africa’s top schools and a massive increase in online grooming of teens since lockdown, understanding this dreaded topic has become an absolute necessity for parents and educators alike.
In this brand-new webinar, we unpack the psychodynamics, legalities and most importantly, some solutions to cope with and prevent the scourge of sexual grooming. Delegates will leave the webinar upskilled with practical solutions to this unspeakable menace hiding in plain sight in our school corridors and maliciously lurking in our children’s online chat rooms.
The talk covers:
What does grooming look like?
What are the different stages of grooming and how do sexual groomers work carefully and insidiously to gain our children’s trust?
Who is a groomer? What is the profile of a groomer and what is driving this behaviour?
What does online grooming look like?
What does the law say about sexual grooming?
What action should schools take?
Preventative measures that schools can take.
Preventative measures that parents can take.
How to talk to children appropriately about the dangers of online grooming.
Please note that this online event is a multi-school event.
