East Bay Agency for Children is a recognized leader in teaching children, youth and adults how to recognize and respond to situations that are unsafe and abusive, addressing the preventable aspects of child abuse, neglect and other forms of violence. Workshops and trainings are provided to Alameda County children and youth from preschool through high school, with other specialized trainings offered to parents/care givers, school staff, youth serving professionals, and the community at-large.
Our prevention workshops and trainings are based on:
- The Child Assault Prevention (CAP) model, a world-renowned curriculum that uses a human rights approach to understanding violence against children
- The Nurturing Parenting Programs, family-based programs with a proven track record of preventing the recurrence of child abuse and neglect by building nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to abusive and neglectful parenting
- Triple P (Positive Parenting Program), an evidence-based program giving parents simple and practical strategies to help them build strong, healthy relationships, confidently manage their children’s behavior and prevent problems developing
CAP Workshops have three components: Children's/Youth Workshop, Parent/Care giver Workshop, and Youth Service Provider Workshop. Workshops for children and youth are developmentally appropriate, non-threatening and engaging, using a combination of role-playing and guided group discussions and activities designed to teach specific skills and strategies for abuse and violence prevention.
