GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION

Child abuse and neglect are a serious problem in our society. Its effects are long-term, may persist over generations, and affect the most vulnerable members of society. In recognition of the importance of clinicians being trained to recognize, report, and treat individuals and families involved in abuse and neglect, California and many other states require periodic training of clinicians. This 7 CE course is designed to meet California and several other states' CE standards.

Stop Child Abuse Clinicians will learn to not only identify the indications of child abuse and neglect--which range from subtle indicators to profound abuse--but equally important, to be sensitive to the dangers of making false accusations.

This course is in five parts. Part One provides both national and state definitions and statistics of child abuse and neglect. Part Two provides information on assessing and reporting child abuse and neglect, including the laws governing mandated reporting in California and other states. Part Three covers prevention and treatment. Part Four covers special considerations when working with Asian American and Native American children and families. Part Five contains additional resources where clinicians and the general public can seek more information, support, and training.
