Creating Sexually Safer Congregations

March 31, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This webinar offers one Continuing Education Credit for Social Workers and Psychologists.


Faith communities need policies and procedures to prevent sexual abuse, sexual harassment and sexual misconduct in the congregation. The Religious Institute, using a national consensus process, has created a new safer congregation’s best practice initiative for congregations across the theological spectrum.  The webinar will address why faith communities must renew their commitment to sexually safer policies and procedures, provide an overview of how denominations currently address these issues, introduce the key criteria of a sexually safer congregation, and discuss how sex abuse experts and treatment providers can actively partner with faith communities.
