Mission: Child assualt prevention (cap) is a statewide community based program designed to teach pre-school through 6th grade children the skills necessary to prevent verbal, physical and sexual assualt. It also teaches parents and teachers, skills and strategies for effectively responding to children in crisis. Cap was originated by members of an ohio based woman against rape group. It has been successfully used in communities in 26 states as well as in england and canada. Cap focuses on teaching children self assertiveness, the use of peer support, and the importance of communicating with trusted adults. Through teacher in service, parent workshops, and individual classroom workshops, cap trainers generate belief in the issue of children's rights and provide information on the subject. Adult workshops include how to identify an abused child and abusive parents, activities for school and home to reiforce cap strategies, and ways to talk to children about personal assault issues.
