Sexual Misconduct: Adult to Student – Awareness Training Programs

Sexual Abuse and Misconduct Awareness On Site


Training for Administrators, Teachers and Staff

School administrators, teachers and staff want to keep students safe from predators in their midst, but they simply don’t know how to identify the behaviors that indicate sexual misconduct is occurring. This failure can result in great harm to the students and expose the district and the individual to legal liability. Only by training every school employee to identify and report the subtle signs of adult sexual misconduct can you begin to properly protect students.

Mary Jo McGrath’s newest course trains school personnel to identify the early warning signs that adult to student sexual misconduct may be taking place.
