Free class on talking about sexual abuse, safety for kids
Aspen-Snowmass locals are invited to attend a free class on age-appropriate ways to speak with children about sexual abuse and body safety on Wednesday night.
Led by Meghan Hurley, a local therapist and author of the book “Who’s the Boss of This Body?” the two-hour class aims to empower adults with tips and effective strategies to talk with kids about this difficult topic.
The class will be hosted by the River Bridge Regional Center, a child advocacy center based in Glenwood Springs, and the Garfield County Department of Human Services at Aspen Mountain Tots, 215 N. Garmisch St., starting at 5:15 p.m.
Free child care will be provided for parents attending the class. Event organizers ask that attendees register before the class at https://AspenMountainTots10tips.eventbrite.com.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
