Protective Behaviours Parent Workshops

Workshop Introduction

The WA Child Protection Society acknowledges that parents are the primary educators of their children and as such they play a vital role in developing personal skills and strategies that their children need to navigate safety in world that surrounds them.

Whilst adults are and will remain responsible for the safety of children and young people, it is important that we continue to educate children and young people about personal safety from the age of 4. The world they live in poses many challenges and unsafe situations that may threaten their safety and wellbeing.

This comprehensive training workshop has been designed to teach parents the content of the internationally acclaimed Protective Behaviours Child Safety Program to increase their children's personal safety.

Protective Behaviours is a personal safety program teaching empowerment, communication, self-esteem, resilience, social skills and other life skills for children.
