Child Assault Prevention (CAP) Program


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:


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.

CAP Workshops for adults are specially designed for the target population (parents, school staff, youth serving professionals, faith communities, the community at-large) and include topics such as the dynamics of child abuse and neglect; family and youth violence; recognizing and addressing bullying/cyberbullying; internet safety; definitions and characteristics of child abuse, neglect, and all other forms of assault; mandated reporting and responsibilities; crisis intervention techniques; prevention strategies; and community resources.

Parenting workshops and trainings target all families with children birth to 18, especially those who are at risk for abuse and neglect.

The Child Assault Prevention Program offers fulfilling volunteer opportunities.
