Supporting Victimized Students

Home   /   Resources   /   Supporting Victimized Students

Traumatized or victimized children often have difficulty at school with learning and social interactions. They often express feelings of anger, fear, and guilt in appropriate ways and educators and staff don’t always know how to respond.

The Child Abuse Prevention Sourcebook for Florida School Personnel is an excellent resource for schools on both reporting abuse and supporting students who have been victimized.

See the attached Safety Brief on Supporting Students who have been Victimized for a summary of tips from the Sourcebook.

What They're Saying...

The MBF Child Safety Matters program is impressive. This important information is well formulated and well presented, developmentally appropriate, and based on good understanding of literature.

The MBF Teen Safety Matters curriculum hosts an in-depth approach to important social and safety concerns relevant to youth. The program content is age-appropriate with engaging activities, jargon, and realistic situations to positively promote a relatable and impacting learning experience…Teen Safety Matters is an educational benefit to all parties involved – students, parents, facilitators, and schools.

There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.
