The child sexual abuse pandemic is complex but understanding the intricacies is what equips us to intercede and effectively lower the risk of abuse. So amidst your demanding job responsibilities and other priorities, how to do you quickly come up to speed on the overall issue and the potential opportunities to make a difference in your organization?
We've written a book on informed best practices that's a great place to start. After reading the book, you'll be better able to determine if and when you need help to develop and implement your prevention program or if you're ready to use this self-help guide to get started on your own.
Self-Help Prevention Guide
The Best Place to Start
Ten percent of students surveyed say they were abused at school – that is nearly 4.5 million U.S. students. That number doesn't begin to address the children who were abused in day care centers, boys and girls clubs, faith organizations, sports programs, and other youth-serving organizations. Child molesters need access in order to abuse and what better way to gain it than to work for an organization that serves youth?
8 Ways to Create their Fate:
Protecting the Sexual Innocence of Children
in Youth-Serving Organizations
As a youth-serving organization leader, staff member, or parent, this book will guide you to create an environment where child molesters virtually cannot succeed without being caught and therefore won't want to work. We all play a part in the solution and this book provides step-by-step instructions on your part. This self-help book includes:
- Detailed teaching on eight informed best practices
- A workbook built into each chapter to spur your thoughts and facilitate dialog within your organization
- A self-assessment worksheet which allows you to do a gap analysis of your current practices versus best practices
- A link to free training for staff, volunteers, and parents
For $20.99, there is no better investment you can make in your kids.

“I am so thrilled that Diane Cranley has written 8 Ways to Create their Fate and I am already looking for ways to integrate it into my consulting, teaching, and advocacy work. For many years Diane has been a guest lecturer in my classes at California State University Fullerton at both the undergrad and graduate level. Based on student feedback, I can say her impact is immediate, profound, and powerful. In sharing her own story she makes people comfortable enough to open up to the idea of talking more about childhood sexual abuse. She then uses that comfort level to help her audience connect with, understand, and then fully comprehend the depth of her idea that ‘we grant child molesters access to our children.’ Finally, she inspires us to step up and become part of the solution with her easy to implement and virtually foolproof best practices. What I find most excellent about Diane’s approach is that the best practices are designed to actually prevent child abuse before it could ever occur. We don’t have to wait until after the kid is molested to act, in fact, that is much too late for prevention!”
