About Praesidium

Praesidium has been dedicated to its mission of protecting vulnerable populations and preserving organizational trust since 1991. With a global reach, Praesidium collaborates with organizations across all industries to prevent sexual abuse of children and vulnerable adults, combat false allegations of abuse against innocent employees and volunteers, and mitigate reputational and financial damage to entities serving vulnerable populations. With over 30 years of experience in abuse risk management, Praesidium has served more than 4,000 clients and offers comprehensive abuse risk management and loss control services to a diverse client base, including, but not limited to: higher education institutions, schools, faith institutions and churches, camps, hospitals and healthcare facilities, luxury resorts, social service agencies, sports and recreational programs, fitness clubs, and childcare centers.

Praesidium's approach is grounded in a scientific methodology that involves root cause analysis. The Praesidium Safety Equation® model was developed after analyzing thousands of incidents of abuse across various industries, which identified eight key areas of organizational operations that pose abuse risk, including Policies, Screening and Selection, Training, Monitoring and Supervision, Internal Feedback Systems, Consumer Participation, Responding, and Administrative Practices.

Praesidium experts will conduct a live training session on Supervising for Safety on Thursday afternoon.

Supervising for Safety: The Administrator’s Role in Abuse Risk Management is designed for management staff, supervisors, and administrators. Participants will learn specific skills and strategies that they can quickly implement in their organizations to help prevent abuse against vulnerable populations, protect staff from false allegations, and protect organizations from financial and legal liability. This presentation and discussion will guide participants through the process of identifying risks specific to their organizations and help them develop practical risk reduction plans.

Participants will learn:

  • Research-based abuse risk management techniques, such as what type of policies should be formalized into practice and enforced;
  • How to screen for abuse risk during the hiring process;
  • How best to equip and train employees and volunteers with appropriate abuse prevention knowledge and skills;
  • Monitoring and supervision best practices for ensuring safety within facilities, staff-client interactions, and high-risk activities;
  • Responding and reporting to various concerns or incidents of inappropriate behavior or abuse; and,
  • How to prevent drift from standards by identifying risk trends through incident information.
