This is a photo from my April Facilitator Training session for Darkness to Light Stewards of Children (D2L). These training sessions are open to any responsible adult who’d like to teach others how to prevent, respond, and report child sexual abuse (CSA).
D2L is evidence-based and the only nationally recognized prevention training in the U.S. The facilitator session lasts all day and includes a workbook, additional materials, and a certificate to provide D2L training in your community.
I love these Facilitator Training sessions because they give me the chance to duplicate myself. In just one day I can equip other adults with the tools, skills, education, and self-confidence they need to make a significant change in their communities.
Everyone who signs up for D2L Facilitator Training is a leader. That’s a given. My job is to help them figure out what kind of leader they are. We do that by identifying their main strength, something of deep meaning to them, a core value they already live. As we progress through the session, they realize they are indeed strong, courageous, determined, fearless, compassionate, generous, diligent, loyal, caring people.
Then it’s time to sharpen their individual skills, learn the specifics of CSA prevention, and practice what we teach. By the end of the day they’ve been encouraged and empowered, as well as thoroughly educated. They now have all the tools they need to go back to their communities and teach their first D2L class. Very exciting!
