Praesidium is the national leader in abuse risk management of sexual abuse of vulnerable populations. With more than 25 years of experience, and serving thousands of clients, our dedicated team of researchers, psychologists, attorneys, social workers, and human resources professionals have analyzed thousands of cases of abuse and synthesized the latest scientific research.

What is Praesidium's approach to managing the risk of abuse in clients' organizations?  

Praesidium uses a systems-based approach created from the scientific research of thousands of reported incidents of abuse. This analysis identified that the root-causes of incidents fall into one or more of eight organizational operations which, taken together, comprise Praesidium’s Safety Equation®. We help our clients implement best practice standards in each of the eight operations to close gaps, decrease risks, and creates safer environments within their organizations.
