Course Description:

This module begins by exploring how child abuse has been viewed over the centuries, and how laws protecting children have been a relatively recent development. To help CMs understand the full scope of child abuse, the module lays out the prevalence, demographics and economics among segments of American society, and how team members across different sectors (from nurses to law enforcement to school psychologists) play parts in identifying child abuse. Then, the module describes the main signs and dynamics of child abuse, from violent hitting or slapping to sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect and abandonment.
