Quick Overview

Addressing concerns in ministries to children and adolescents.
Everyone who reads the newspaper or listens to radio or television news will hear fairly frequently about child sexual abuse accusations, trials and convictions. This book raises awareness of child sexual abuse issues relevant to ministry, examining what it is, who is at risk and the effects it has on a child. It covers the responsibilities that churches have for their children, such as removing opportunity for abuse, remedial action and responding on behalf of victims. A child safeguarding section provides links to policy statements and suggested workshop material.
This important volume is aimed at those responsible for setting policies and procedures for work with children in religious-affiliated settings. It is also a valuable resource for anyone who has direct contact with children in ministry.
