Trivandrum: GTech, the Group of Technology Companies in Kerala, is organising a parent focused Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) prevention programme on December 10, 2013 at Technopark, Trivandrum. The primary focus of this programme is to help parents in the IT industry to better understand how they can protect their children from falling prey to CSA.

The speaker for the session is Angel Thomas, Clinical Psychologist at the Amala Institute of Medical Sciences in Thrissur. She is an NCERT National Doctoral Fellow in Psychology at Department of Psychology, University of Kerala and is currently pursuing her research in the area of prevention of childhood sexual abuse. She has over nine years of experience and has been actively involved in designing and conducting social and public awareness / training programmes focusing on CSA prevention.

According to a communiqué from GTech, an unnoticed but prevalent crime can be prevented if we as parents gain awareness on how to train our children to identify and oppose to any incidence of childhood sexual abuse. While participation is free, prior registration will be appreciated. So if you are interested and would like to attend the session, click here to register.

The event is being conducted by SEEK (Support, Empower, Educate – Kerala), the Corporate Social Responsibility arm of GTech, in association with eWIT, the women’s IT forum which aims at empowerment of women in IT.
