Darkness 2 Light Training

Darkness 2 Light Training


About this Event

SIGN UP AT EVENTBRITE

Darkness to Light offers training that specializes in the education and prevention of child sexual abuse, other forms of abuse, and mandated reporting. Stewards of Children, the flagship program, teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

1 out of 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. Chances are, someone you know has been impacted. Research shows that people who are sexually violated as children are far more likely to experience psychological problems often lasting into adulthood, including post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, suicide, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout and relationship problems.

Darkness to Light understands that learning the facts about childhood sexual abuse helps prevent it. Talking about it helps prevent it. Getting involved helps prevent it. The truth is, if childhood sexual abuse can be prevented, it can be stopped.

If you have a desire to serve in any capacity with children/teens at the Church of Joy, the Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children training is mandatory.

Impact Training


About this Event

IMPACT training is the state-required training for all potential foster and respite families. The program is 24 total hours. Instead of stretching the sessions over the course of 6 weeks, the full training will be done in two weekends (Friday-Sunday).

Friday November 2nd 6pm-10pm

Sunday November 3rd 2pm-6pm

Dinner will be provided on the Friday night session. Snacks will be available throughout.


WHAT IS IMPACT TRAINING?

IMPACT was developed by the Georgia Department of Human Resources Division of Family and Children Services to prepare resource families for the joys and challenges of fostering and adopting. IMPACT addresses the entire service continuum from initial inquiry through completion of the family evaluation.

IMPACT stands for Initial Interest, Mutual Selection, Pre-Service Training, Assessment, Continuing Development and Teamwork. The curriculum helps potential resource families to make an informed decision about their desire to resource parent, to enhance skills for parenting and nurturing children, and to clarify the resource parent’s role in the social service continuum.
