AUXILIARY SOCIAL WORKER, YOUTH DEVELOPMENT, COURT PREPARATION
My Name is Shirley Radebe, a Social Auxiliary Worker at Woman and Men Against Child Abuse’s Boksburg Kidz Clinic.
I have been working for the Organization for the past 11 years. My job entails doing intakes whereby I do a risk assessment on the victim we assess to make sure that the child is safe at home.
The other part of my job is that I do Court preparation for the victims, preparing them to have confidence and being able to answer questions posed to them without feeling overwhelmed.
I also facilitate a Youth Development Program which deals with inappropriate sexual offences dealing with juvenile to juvenile offences at schools and at home. The program assists the children to be able to make informed decisions, to be able to learn from their mistakes and not to repeat them and teaches them about empathy.
