To prevent, we need education
Program “Mi Escudo”: Self-protection tools
In continuous programs with educators, we teach children mechanisms of self-protection, how to increase their self-esteem, and how to recognize reliable adults. Educators must replicate the program every year to create to increase its effect.
Duration and methodology:
- An introductory 2-hour session with educators
- 12 training sessions of 1½ hours each with educators.
- 12 program sessions of 1½ hours each by educators with the support of a professional from Azulado. There will be one weekly session for approximately 3 months.
- A two-hour talk with parents at the end of the program. The work we do with parents focuses in strengthening ties with their children and provides them with tools to educate through good treatment.
The implementation of this program includes playful and sensory activities that allow children to express themselves in a secure environment, and allow teachers to identify cases of abuse. In these cases, teachers must file a report.
