Providing a Safe Environment for Abused Children - 5:16
with Alex Brace, Executive Director of Small Talk Children's Assessment Center
Posted May 23, 2018
Small Talk is where children who are victims of physical and sexual abuse are interviewed and offered therapy at no cost. The mission of Small Talk is to provide a comfortable, child-friendly atmosphere where children receive coordinated services during the child abuse investigative process. After law enforcement receives a report of abuse, the goal is to conduct one interview by a trained professional to avoid re-victimizing a child with repeated, unnecessary interviews. A child's statement is obtained in a developmentally-sensitive, unbiased, and truth-seeking manner that will support accurate and fair decision-making in the criminal justice and child welfare systems. After the interview process is complete, trauma-focused counseling is offered at no cost. Small Talk, accredited with the National Children's Alliance, is leading the community in addressing child abuse and empowering children to have the courage to heal. Small Talk is where small voices can be heard.
