About Little Warriors: Little Warriors is a national, charitable organization committed to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of child sexual abuse.

Did you know?: Experts estimate that 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys will experience sexual abuse. 95% of those children will know and trust their perpetrator.

About the Prevent It! Workshop: Developed by researchers at the University of Alberta, in collaboration with Little Warriors, the interactive workshop was designed to improve attitudes, knowledge and behaviour of workshop participants with regards to child sexual abuse. This workshop is unique in Canada and was developed using research-informed methods and evaluated with scientific rigour. Results published in Frontiers in Psychology suggest that at the three month follow up after completing the workshop, participants showed highly significant improvements in several aspects of behaviour and knowledge, and attitudes regarding child sexual abuse.

Little Warriors offers this workshop free of charge to participants in your community. You can read all about the informative and empowering workshop here as well as register for this upcoming workshop: http://littlewarriors.ca/prevention/workshop/
