Talking to Children/Talking to Parents about Sexual Assault. Revised Edition.
This manual shares some of the experiences in parent and child education in sexual assault of a group dedicated to alleviating the trauma of sexual assault for victims and their families. The section of the manual about talking to children is arranged in four levels: kindergartners and first graders; second and third graders; fourth and fifth graders; and sixth graders. For each level, general information on sexual assault appropriate for the grade level is presented with an outline of the presentation. Some levels are accompanied by sample presentations, additional material, and questions and answers. Suggestions on how to deal with children who disclose past victimization, knowledge of another's vicimization, or their own current victimization are provided. A section on parent presentations describes frequent sources of parent presentations, background material on sexual assault, and three goals (provide information, stimulate thinking, and work toward change) of presentations. An outline of the parent presentation and sample presentation notes are provided. The appendix includes a discussion of working with parents of child victims of sexual assault and an annotated bibliography of books for children and parents, films for children, and materials on curriculum development.
