Introducing The Protecting God's Children for Adults Program
The National Catholic Risk Retention Group is pleased to present a brief introduction to their Protecting God's Children for Adults program. Their presentation exemplifies the information provided in their child sexual abuse awareness sessions for adults. Please click here to start their eleven-minute presentation, and if you happen to have any comments or questions about their program, please click here to send them an e-mail message. We also encourage you to visit their VIRTUS Online website frequently as new risk management information is added each week emphasizing articles and interactive features designed to increase public awareness about child sexual abuse, and to provide adults with the knowledge and tools needed to help prevent and, if necessary, respond appropriately to child sexual abuse.
