Protective Behaviours Community Way

The Protective Behaviours Community Way Resources and Training Package was developed in 2002 with the Dampier Peninsular Women’s Group and KAMS to address child sexual abuse.

This program aims to make children strong to be safe and feel safe in their home and community.

The program has two key themes:

  • We All have the Right to feel Safe all of the Time;
  • Nothing is so awful that we can’t talk about it to someone.

And three core concepts:

  • Safety,
  • Early Warning Signs and
  • Networking

The training can be tailored to be delivered to a wide range of people within the community, from community groups, parent groups (single mums and dads) and primary school children.
