This second and third grade curriculum teaches how to prevent victimization through assertiveness skill building. Through interactive presentations and role-play, children learn how to stay safe from bullying, emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. Follow-up activities and parental support allow for ongoing practice and repetition to increase retention of the skills. There are five 30-minute lessons.
