All parents face the challenge of handling their child’s sexual development and curiosity. Answering a child's questions and determining normal, healthy development versus intrusive, harmful acting out is challenging.

Frequently, parents are the ones who identify their child's concerning sexual behaviors. In some instances, such behavior is reported by other children and comes to the attention of Child Protective Services, law enforcement or community programs. When this happens parents can naturally become frightened and protective of their child.

Through the RSafe® program, Lutheran Family Services helps parents and guardians assess a child’s sexual behavior and determine if a counseling plan would help the child develop more healthy ways of relating to others. We believe that early assistance, from ages 4 to 18, can prevent sexual behavior problems into adulthood.

The RSafe Program is dedicated to emotionally healing children and families affected by sexual abuse. We offer individual, family and group therapy, as well as consultation and collaboration with numerous agencies. Group therapy in particular helps children and youth understand their problems, take responsibility for their actions, develop and practice skills to interrupt sexually abusive behavior, practice positive socialization with peers, and develop a more healthy sense of self.

The Program is divided in to three age groups

  • Children - Ages 4 to 8 years
  • Preadolescents - Ages 9 to 13 years
  • Adolescent - Ages 14 to 18 years

To enroll in this program, please call (402) 661-7100 in Omaha.

Funding for this program is provided in part by The United Way of the Midlands, the Nebraska Child Abuse Prevention Fund, the Omaha Community Foundation, Kiwanis Club Inc., Immanuel Health Systems, Region 6 Behavioral Healthcare, Midlands Community Foundation, Promise Partners and the Nebraska Crime Commission.
