Safe Church Training, Poughkeepsie (Mid-Hudson Region)
September 22, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Episcopal Diocese of New York is committed to keeping congregations and ministries safe. Sexual misconduct on the part of any clergyperson, employee, or volunteer of any congregation, institution, organization, school or agency within the diocese violates the mission of the Church, is prohibited by law, and will not be tolerated.
Using the Safeguarding Training Series published by the Church Pension Fund, the diocese offers Safe Church Training concerning both children and adults.
This training teaches participants to recognize the signs of sexual abuse and the behavior of sexual perpetrators, how to respond to those signs and behaviors when they are observed, and provides screening information to help stop abuse before it happens.
