RVAP added a new program, Stewards of Children, to its community prevention curricula. This curriculum is an adult-focused prevention training program that centers on improving the awareness of the prevalence, consequences, and circumstances of child sexual abuse (CSA). One of the main goals of the program is primary prevention by teaching child care professionals specific strategies to prevent CSA from occurring the first time. Another goal of this program is secondary prevention, which involves teaching adults to identify when abuse is occurring and to respond to children appropriately, in order to keep them safe from future abuse and prevent potential subsequent abuse-related problems.
