Dallas Children's Advocacy Center (DCAC) coordinates the investigation, prosecution, and healing services for the most severe cases of child abuse in Dallas County - those that rise to the level of a criminal offense. Each year, DCAC serves over 7,300 children (and their non-offending family members) who were sexually abused, severely physically abused, or who had witnessed a violent crime. Our average client is a 9-year-old girl, sexually abused by someone she knows and trusts.
Child Abuse Training Curriculum
DCAC's three video-based curricula provide a comprehensive training solution for mandated reporters, parents, children, and community members on the full scope of child maltreatment.
- Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse – appropriate for all who work with or care about children
- Como Reconocer y Reportar el Abuso Hacia Menores – culturally-appropriate child protection curriculum produced entirely in Spanish
- Parent/Child Curriculum Package – for use in schools or other child serving organizations who want to engage parents in the active protection of their children; this package is combined with a short video for school counselors or other leaders to use to help educate children in their care.
Whether you have an hour to host your own training or want to send your workforce online to train at their own pace, DCAC can help. Our training packages are reasonably priced for organizational-level use, provide high value content, and offer significant training flexibility for child-serving organizations. Curriculum packages include video, a program guide and a year of complimentary online access to the courses purchased. Online access includes the ability for organizations to invite up to 250 employees and/or volunteers to train online, including testing and automated certificate generation. Larger organizations may purchase access for additional users or may ask about opportunities to co-brand DCAC's curriculum products.
Parents or other individuals may purchase a one-time online course which also includes testing and certificate generation. Parents may be especially interested in accessing DCAC's Parent/Child Curriculum Package to help raise their level of awareness and to prepare for a conversation with their child/children. Each individual online course is available for 10 days.
