Parenting Safe Children empowers adults to keep children safe from sexual abuse. We educate parents and professionals through the Parenting Safe Children Workshop (online and in- person), where participants learn what makes children vulnerable to sexual abuse; how to talk with schools, sports programs, day care and places of faith about child safety; and what body- safety rules to teach children. Feather Berkower, LCSW, has been a leader in child sexual abuse prevention since 1985. Using a community-based approach, she has trained over 150,000 school children, parents, and professionals. Feather makes a difficult topic less scary, and consistently impresses audiences with her knowledge, commitment, and warmth.
