The Enough Abuse Campaign is a grassroots movement that originated in Massachusetts by the Massachusetts Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Partnership and is gaining momentum across the country. Recognized by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as "...a trailblazing effort to prevent child sexual abuse by building a movement of concerned citizens, community by community," the Campaign has been adopted by Children's Home Society of South Dakota in partnership with the Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment for distribution and training throughout the state of South Dakota. Each of these six training opportunities are a part of the licensed Enough Abuse Campaign.

6. It's Not Just Jenna:
A True Story of Child Sexual Abuse and Survival

It’s Not Just Jenna” is a compelling 30-minute video featuring the true story of a family whose lives were changed after 16-year old Jenna Quinn revealed that she had been sexually abused by a trusted family friend. The Quinn family’s willingness to share their journey of discovery will help others learn how to prevent child sexual abuse by education.

“What if…?” card sets are an interactive teaching tool designed to help adults evaluate a child’s understanding of challenging situations and help children learn to respond; participants will receive a free set of “What If…?” cards.

In the final session, participants will learn how to receive a disclosure–and how to offer support to the individual and the investigation.

Objectives:

  • Learn behaviors to be aware of in adults that might indicate they pose a risk to children
  • Understand ways sexual abusers “groom” or establish trust with potential victims and their families
  • Recognize behaviors to be aware of in children or teens that might indicate they are being or have been sexually abused
  • Know why it’s difficult for victims of child sexual abuse to disclose
  • Learn how to respond when we see behaviors in an adult, child, or teen that indicate they might be involved in sexual abuse.

Audience: Community Members, Professionals, Parents

Trainer: Presented by a Certified Enough Abuse Trainer.
