Learning Objectives:

*** PLEASE NOTE: Updated Information on ICAP and the Child Assault Prevention Program
This webinar contains valuable information about both the CAP approach to child abuse and neglect prevention, and the International Center for Assault Prevention (ICAP). Since it was produced, ICAP has ended as a central organizing office. Many of the CAP Regional Training centers (RTCs) that deliver the program continue to offer the prevention services discussed in the webinar, and we invite you to contact an RTC for additional information and to discuss the availability of services and training. In sum, when viewing the webinar note the following: •The references to ICAP as an organization no longer apply. • ICAP has empowered the existing Regional Training Centers to operate independently, utilizing the full range of CAP programs they deliver. •In the webinar, the descriptions of the history, philosophy, evaluation studies, and CAP programs, particularly the elementary program, are accurate and provide a useful summary of why the program has been successful internationally. •The information on how to start a CAP program is no longer relevant, as each RTC is now responsible for organizing service parameters and negotiating the best fit for local needs. •The current list of active RTCs and contact information can be found under Resource Downloads on the right-hand side of this page. We invite you to contact an RTC near you or that is linguistically compatible to discuss how CAP might be useful to you in your efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect and help children to understand their right to be safe, strong, and free.
