In response to the news about Chaim Walder the author of Kids Speak, Dr. Shani Verschleiser AuD., LCSW produced a live 45-minute Q&A and discussion surrounding the difficult news.
Shani said stories like these are shocking and appalling. This type of news makes us feel like the rug is being pulled out from under us.
Some of the topics Dr. Verschleiser discusses in the video include:
How such a thing can happen, and how can such a person be capable of this?
How can we stop these things from happening? How can we address this issue in our community?
“When we put our trust into a community leader it is extremely difficult to wrap our heads around such news”, Shani stated.
“Our MagenU curriculum has been in 40+ Jewish schools training children, administration, educators, and parents, on how to protect our youth from becoming victims of sexual abuse. Remember over 95% of abuse is preventable with education.”
Dr. Shani Verschleiser, AuD. LCSW, is a noted author, children’s movie producer, and speaker on the subject of family and child safety. She has educated tens of thousands on the topic of protecting children from sexual abuse through the curriculum created by her and Magenu.org, a national not for profit organization that she and her husband Eli Verschleiser co-founded.
