Child Abuse & Neglect

Course Description

Community members are fundamental in identifying and reporting suspected cases of child maltreatment, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and psychological maltreatment. Early childhood staff including nannies and family childcare providers are involved in responding to child abuse and neglect and supplementing needed services. In addition, community-based agency staff, substance abuse treatment providers, domestic violence victim advocates, clergy, extended family members, and concerned citizens also play important roles in supporting families and keeping children safe. As a family childcare provider or nanny, your role as a mandated reporter will necessitate continuous observation, documentation, and support to all families in the care setting and in the community. (Prerequisite: None) (3 credits: 3 lecture/0 lab)
