Why C.A.S.E?

Praesidium has been working with organizations to protect vulnerable populations for more than 25 years. Over that time, the science of understanding how abuse happens has rapidly evolved, and awareness about the issue has grown exponentially. To create this program, our team conducted a systematic review of current scientific research, our own internal data from delivering training programs, incident data from insurance and legal claims, and years of observations from the field with our wide range of clients.

Professional Filmography

Issue fatigue is common in many organizations with long-term staff. Having a compelling, high-end film helps to captivate the most knowledgeable of audiences and enhances the memorability of all the lessons learned.

Increased Engagement

Because of the innovative format of the storyline, staff and volunteers become highly engaged with the training material. This interaction allows learners to discuss the best practices and how these practices apply to their daily activities.

Timely and Relevant Content

Unlike many other training solutions, C.A.S.E. discusses and highlights the prevalence of youth-to-youth abuse and how to prevent and report it. In addition, C.A.S.E. discusses how to overcome low-level barriers to reporting in order to actually prevent abuse.
