Texas CASA has purchased licenses for local Program Leadership and Program Staff to access Praesidium Academy, a series of e-learning courses on best practices in preventing child sexual abuse. These are available for free through the rest of the calendar year. Learn about proper boundaries, how sexual abuse offenders operate, how to stop sexual abuse and more. Remember, you are a vital part in keeping those you serve safe!
While we hope you never have to make use of what you learn, it is crucial to be prepared to prevent, identify and protect youth from abuse. Texas CASA has identified Strongly Recommended Courses and Additional Best Practice Courses for both Program Staff and Program Leadership to help prioritize which courses should be completed. Some courses tackle social media safety, how to monitor youth safety in foster care environments, how to prevent sexual activity among young children and many other topics.
