Yes Touch, No Touch

Teaching children the difference between intimacy and inappropriate sexual advance

This workshop is designed to help Clinicians speak to children in a language they understand about how to differentiate appropriate and inappropriate touching by adults.

Touchy Feely Good & Bad
What to Do About Touching Behaviors

Geared for children in grades K-2, this 30 minute presentation addresses different types of touch including "okay" touches, "not okay" touches, and "secret touches." Children learn that their body belongs to them. If somebody touches them in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable, they have a right to say no and to tell a grown-up.

Students receive a handout to bring home to their parents summarizing the concepts covered during the presentation.
