Caregiver Education and Support

Bethesda recognizes that children are part of a family, therefore, Caregivers need to be involved in healing, too.

While the children meet in their respective groups, the non-offending caregivers participate in an educational/ support group. This curriculum parallels the child’s program and addresses basic parenting skills, boundaries, problem solving, and issues specific to sexual abuse. The program also helps the caregivers refocus on their child's strengths and potentials. Our goal is for families to gain and build upon basic tools for healthy living.
