individual Education sessions 

Direct Support for Families and Children

Protective Behaviours WA  was originally established in 1992 as a training organisation providing quality professional training workshops to service providers and teachers however due to the high demand for services direct to the client our services now extend to helping children and their families affected by child abuse in particular child sexual abuse and to support the  families who are also affected.

The Protective Behaviours One to One educational sessions create the opportunity for awareness, understanding and education on child protection and child safety issues giving children the knowledge and skills to deal more effectively with unsafe and or abusive situations they may find themselves in. Research shows that the program is an effective tool in the prevention of child sexual abuse.

Education session objectives :

  • To provide children, parents , carers and their family with a knowledge of the content, themes, core concepts and strategies of the Protective Behaviours program.
  • To provide children, parents , carers and their family with simple, practical teaching activities designed to increase individuals  personal safety which in turn aims to prevent the incidence of child abuse and or the re- occurrence of abuse that may have already been perpetrated against the child/children.
  • To develop problem solving and assertiveness skills in children and  their families.
  • To educate adults and caregivers in the issues of abuse and abuse prevention.

Education sessions can include other siblings and will incorporate parent/carer information.  By providing a service that is both professional and responsive to individual needs we are able to facilitate the sessions  in a meaningful and responsive manner.

Our professional team of trainers can either present the information in the comfort of the child’s home or alternatively at our training room which located in Kensington.  Liaison between the trainer and the parent/carer and or case manager will take place prior to the session(s) commencement to determine the number of sessions required. This in turn will maximise the child's learning capacity and effectiveness of the information being presented.

The increase in demand for this service is continuing to rise however Protective Behaviours WA offers appointments for sessions to individuals, couples and families.
