Working with local Schools
CSSI works in partnership with Protective Behaviours WA (PBWA) and local schools to deliver the Protective Behaviours program. If you would like more information about CSSI delivering PB in your school, please contact CSSI.
Protective Behaviours Program
The Protective Behaviours Program is child-focused, and founded on the fundamental belief that children have a right to physical and psychological safety at all times, and that we as individuals, parents, communities and governments must play a part in protecting children of all ages and walks of life.
THE TWO THEMES OF THE PB PROGRAM:
1. “We all have a right to feel safe all of the time.”
2. “Nothing is so awful that you can’t talk with someone about it .”
The two themes contain much of the essence of the Protective Behaviours content and are used throughout the program.
WHY DO WE NEED PROTECTIVE BEHAVIOURS?
– Because 93% of abused children are abused by someone they know and trust.
– To empower people with the right to feel safe.
– To give children and adults permission to talk to someone and ask for help when they unsafe, scared or worried.
Working with Parents/Carers
CSSI in partnership with PBWA and the Rangeway Child and Parent Centre and GREC (Geraldton Regional Community Education Centre) will be delivering Adult PB workshops.
The sessions encourage Parents/Carers to develop a relationship with your child/children that encourages them to speak to you about issues that concern them. Parents/Carers also gain an understanding of the PBWA program that is delivered in schools focusing on the themes, concepts and strategies of the life skills program.
“This workshop will help me with three little kids making them safe, even other kids in my life.”
“The adult/carer workshop was easy to understand, energetic delivery and compassionate.”
“I’m more aware of children’s early warning signs and how to respond.”
