Part 1 – History and Definition
This session will cover:

- Health consequences of child abuse and how to work with local physicians and other medical specialists to help determine and prevent child abuse
- Types of disclosures that children can make and how to determine what the disclosures are relating
- Report writing to indicate child abuse as a mandated reporter
Part 3 – Prevention and Intervention
In the final third of our series on child abuse, we will be discussing preventative programs (which lead to greater knowledge and skills regarding sexual safety) and how those programs can work at home, school and in the community, as well as a final overview of mandated child abuse reporting. We’ll review best practices, which involve programs that attempt to affect multiple risk (self-esteem) and protective factors (resilience) at both person- centered (skills training) and environment-centered (school, family) levels. You will be provided with a sample K-12 curriculum and instructional considerations.
