Ways to help prevent child abuse
Standing Up for Children
Online child abuse prevention training
The abuse prevention training course “Standing up for Children: A Christian Response to Child Abuse and Neglect” was produced by Freedom for the Captives. The goal of this training is to equip anyone involved with a church or school to recognize abuse and keep children safe from abuse. The training includes Biblical teaching regarding the responsibility of Christians to keep children safe.
The training includes four online videos. Participants who watch all four videos and pass quizzes on the content will receive a certificate of completion. Veterans of similar training have called this course “excellent.”
For a conference, faculty in-service, or other group, the videos can be shown to everyone at once, then each attendee would receive the “key” to take the online quizzes.
The training must be accessed with an enrollment key. The enrollment key and instructions for the course will be provided after your online registration is accepted. You can fill out the online learning registration form found at WELS.net.
When churches and schools start conversations about abuse, it is not uncommon for Christians who have suffered abuse to seek help. Congregations and schools will find guidance on abuse prevention policies and other important resources on this website.
