Bobbi Bear: Community project, Howard College

Carry Suckling's presentation focuses on a community project conducted by Masters students at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Bobbi Bear is a Non Profit Organisation that provides a non-threatening means for child victims of sexual abuse to communicate the nature of abuse and prevent secondary abuse at the point of rescue. The aim of the program was in essence to develop a support intervention for the non-professional Child Safety Officers (CSOs). The intervention comprised a six session supportive containment, psycho-educational and counselling skills programme based on an initial focus group with the Child Safety Officers.
