School-Based SEL as a Foundation for Abuse Prevention: A State and Schools Collaboration in GA

Although some may see child abuse prevention and social-emotional learning (SEL) as two different domains, leaders within the Georgia Department of Child and Family Services (Prevention and Community Support Section) and Atlanta Public Schools understand that SEL can be primary prevention for their community. Just as the founding researchers of Committee for Children (creators of the Second Step program) discovered nearly 40 years ago, victims and perpetrators of child sexual abuse often lack fundamental social and emotional competencies, such as emotion management, empathy, and social awareness. In a state plagued by some of the highest rates of child sexual abuse in the nation, Georgia leaders embarked on an ambitious program to fund and create long-term, systemic change within their communities via schools and districts, with the goal of decreasing the prevalence of abuse across their state. Join this live webinar to hear firsthand from Section Director of Prevention and Community Support Natalie Towns and Social Emotional Learning Coordinator for Atlanta Public Schools Tara Shelton about practical strategies and learnings from their statewide collaboration and what it’s meant for local schools.
