95% of child abuse cases at Kids Center in Bend, show the victim was familiar with the abuser. That's according to Development Director Robin Atonson. She adds that, often, the abuse happens in their home  and with a family member. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Kid’s Center in Bend would like you to join the Blue Ribbon Campaign to raise awareness of abuse. Hope Storey, a lead forensic interviewer in child abuse cases, says there are ways that you can help stop abuse before it happens, and also help child victims recover from traumatic experiences. "Another thing is really they need to be around supportive care givers so whether it's grandparents community members aunts uncles they need to have these positive role models and so having advocates and people out there that support them through counseling, art therapy, play therapy any kind of group work and just letting them know that it's ok and they can get through this."  For more information on things like signs of abuse or how to get a child to open up about it, go to: www.kidscenter.org  You can also find out how to get an "It's My Body Workbook" or classes "Let's Talk About It" classes at that same site.
