A Circle of Safety Around Our Children:
Strengthening the Links that Protect Kids

Attitudes and actions of adults in charge indirectly and sometimes directly protect children from harm at school, home, and in the community. In this thought-provoking session — part presentation, part forum — Paula examines how caring adults have the power to strengthen or weaken the links that form a “Circle of Safety” around children and teens. She demonstrates 5 key ways to step up and step in on children’s behalves and encourages educators and other caring professionals to embrace their roles as trusted, protective adults. Participants will take away new insights and a specific plan for creating stronger links in their Circles of Safety.

“Your program was a great success.  You created an environment that made participants comfortable and encouraged interaction. I want to share some comments from our participants:  “One of the best seminars ESC-2 has sponsored.”  “So much information we can use!”  “I am privileged to have been here. I’d like to see Paula speak at our state conference.”  “She did a brilliant job! Thank you for preparing us to be responsible!”
