Each month, Praesidium’s experts bring you tips for preventing incidents of abuse and false allegations in your organization. We focus on all operations of the Praesidium Safety Equation® to keep you up to date on the latest trends in abuse risk management!
Even though we try to limit one-on-one interactions between employees and volunteers and youth, we know that sometimes these situations are unavoidable. Therefore, your organization needs policies that address these interactions.
Best practices include:
- Having another employee randomly drop in
- Only meeting with youth while in full view of other employees – with doors open and windows uncovered
- Informing other staff members that you are having a one-on-one session
Make sure to document any unusual incidents, including behavior problems and how they were handled.
