Teachers, principals, coaches, school staff: learn how to prevent, detect, report and stop child sexual abuse and human trafficking.

Senate Bill 199 aims to modernize sexual abuse laws as well as strengthen enforcement and protection for children who have been abused.

Our training to fulfill SB 199 requirements launches with a preview webinar for educators.

This transformative training for individuals and organizations has been developed by Dr. Amy Tiemann and Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, the global nonprofit leader in “People Safety” education.  This webinar will be presented by Dr. Tiemann, Irene van der Zande, Kidpower International Founder and CEO, and Maryjane Hayes, Kidpower North Carolina Center Director

In this training, teachers, principals, coaches, counselors, and other vital school staff will learn how to prevent, detect, report and stop child sexual abuse and human trafficking. We will cultivate awareness and knowledge, and add in best practices, skills, and action steps to enhance child safety.

Kidpower North Carolina has a network of instructors across the state that has trained more than 20,000 people using the evidence-based, trauma-informed Kidpower International curriculum with a 30-year track record of excellence that has been taught to millions of people worldwide.

Dr. Tiemann, a longtime North Carolinian and experienced classroom teacher, has trained educators and other youth-serving professionals statewide.  She is the co-author of the best-selling guide to child safety, Doing Right by Our Kids: Protecting Child Safety at All Levels, with Kidpower Founder Irene van der Zande.  In addition to her respected independent child safety consulting and crisis-response work, Dr. Tiemann serves as a Kidpower International Senior Program Leader.

In 2020 we are launching this customized SB 199 training with two preview webinars.

Part 1 will teach sexual abuse prevention.  Part 2 will address human trafficking.  These webinars will present the complete training that together fulfills the SB 199 requirements.  We are offering them now as a preview for professional review–the training that can then be licensed by schools to train their professional staff in a convenient, scalable, affordable way.


Fulfill the requirements of SB 199 and learn how to create a culture of “Full Circle Safety” in your school.


Led by NC-based Child Safety Expert Amy Tiemann, PhD and Kidpower North Carolina

Part 1: Sexual-abuse Prevention

Learn best practices from the field of prevention, understanding and stopping the grooming process of sexual predators, the warning signs of sexual abuse, how to intervene when sexual abuse suspected or disclosed, legal responsibilities for reporting sexual abuse or sex trafficking, and available resources for assistance.  This session covers what adults need to know and also introduces the Kidpower Consent Checklist and Kidpower Boundary Rules, and Kidpower skills for preventing and stopping sexual abuse.

Part 2: Human Trafficking

North Carolina ranks 10th in the nation in reported human trafficking cases. The second part of the Full Circle Safety training addresses what school personnel can do to understand the risk factors and warning signs of human trafficking, and how to intervene when human trafficking is suspected or disclosed.  This session also introduces how to teach Kidpower skills to help protect young people from sexual trafficking.
