Beyond the Basics: Elevating Your Abuse Awareness IQ

Church leaders aspire to provide a safe environment for all who walk through their doors. Abuse comes in various forms and can affect every person within your congregation. Learn how to recognize different types of abuse, discrimination, harassment and misconduct, how to determine if a situation is a concern, and how to prevent and respond to concerns all while still creating an encouraging and positive environment for everyone. Additionally, you will learn what a typical investigation into allegations looks like and how you can best be prepared to defend against erroneous allegations.

Jeremy Butler, the Iowa Representative for the Insurance Board (Brocker, Karns & Karns, Inc.), will be present to answer questions.

Meets the requirement from the Book of Order for all church council to complete every three years; open to everyone!
