It is important to perform a proper background check on adults who will be working with children.
However only 4% of Child Sexual Abusers have a criminal record that will show up on a criminal background check, The Diana ScreenÂ® identifies an estimated 50% of the men and women who should not be placed into positions of trust with children because they present a sexual risk: either because they have already sexually abused a child or they have a very weak understanding of the strict sexual boundaries required between adults and children.
The Diana ScreenÂ® does not compete with criminal background checks. Rather, it is intended to complement an organization`s current Abuse Risk Management plan. Thus, it is recommended that organizations that begin use of The Diana ScreenÂ® continue use of criminal background checks.
