Course Description

This is a detailed and up-to-date course on clinical and legal issues in child abuse assessment and reporting. Controversial areas are supported by clear explanations with citations of meta-studies, case law, government initiatives, and other current sources. The course covers mandated reporting, profiles of persons who abuse, effects of various types of abuse, resilience, working with child protective agencies, assisting clients in responding to such agencies appropriately, signs of possible child abuse, the value and shortcomings of various signs of abuse, and other topics. A plain-English handout is included that instructs clients as to how to conduct themselves during an investigation.
