Creating a safer world for all children

My Books

I would like to acknowledge and honour the creator of the original Protective Behaviours (PBs) program manual, Peg Flandreau West (1928-1991) who was a school social worker from Madison, Wisconsin. The PBs stories and activities in these books and digital activities are based on the themes, core concepts and strategies of Peg Flandreau West’s PBs manual and have been adapted and expanded upon to enhance personal body safety and social and emotional learning.

And the PBs journey continues…
