Dallas Children's Advocacy Center Information
Brief history: The Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center has a
history of providing training to professionals who investigate and
prosecute crimes against children and to those professionals who help
children heal. For more than two decades, we have hosted the
internationally-recognized Crimes Against Children Conference. In 201 5,
we had just under 4,000 attendees from all over the U.S. and 18 foreign
countries. We seek to leverage our experience as experts in the field
to help child-serving agencies better protect their organization, staff
and ultimately, children. To this end, we have developed
professionally-produced, video-based curricula to address a gap in the
marketplace for comprehensive child protection training.
Our Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse (36
minutes) is designed for professionals working with children on a
regular basis and includes information on the realities of child abuse,
how to recognize physical and behavioral signs of the various forms of
child maltreatment (sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse,
neglect and domestic violence), grooming behaviors, and how to make a
report of suspected abuse.
Como Reconocer y Reportar el Abuso Hacia Menores
(41 minutes) is a culturally-relevant program for Latino audiences. It
includes the same topics as our first program as well as information
related to machismo, fear of law enforcement, and barriers to reporting.
The Parent/Child Curriculum, includes Keeping Your Children Safe in the Real and Virtual World (27 minutes) and You Are Not Alone (10 minutes, for children ages 8-13). This program guides parents on
how to talk to children about personal safety as well as the realities
of child abuse and grooming behaviors of perpetrators.
All of our programs offer flexibility in training as organizations
can choose to facilitate face-to-face presentations via DVD or invite
people online to complete training at www.trainingcenter.net
The online component not only offers compliance tracking but also the
ability to generate certificates of completion automatically. The
organization administrator will have the ability to track who has and
has not taken the course. Each of our programs also includes
supplemental materials, available in hard copy for a fee or a free
download via the online subscription, included as part of the initial
