The Diana Screen® As A Loss Control Instrument

The Diana Screen® is a child safety screen for job applicants and volunteers who want to work with children and teens. It helps identify adults who fail to recognize adult-child sexual boundaries or who are at a high risk for having sexually abused a child in the past, and classifies applicants into two categories of hiring risk.

The Diana Screen child safety screen for insurance companiesUp until recently, the best anyone could do to keep individuals like this away from our children is conduct background screenings. But, only 6% of child sexual abuse is ever reported to the police. In fact, ChoicePoint reported looking at over 3.5 million background checks and finding only 0.2% that could be identified as sexual offenders.

In contrast, The Diana Screen® does not rely on public records or criminal histories. The Diana Screen® methodology provides much more effective results. Administered to job applicants and volunteers, The Diana Screen® is a child safety screen that helps identify adults who fail to recognize adult-child sexual boundaries or who are at a high risk for having sexually abused a child in the past. Because The Diana Screen® does not rely on public records or criminal histories, it does a better job of helping to screen out those individuals who may detract from the safety and welfare of the children in an organization. The Diana Screen® is dramatically more effective than criminal background checks in protecting children and teens against this risk.
