CE Course Description

The problems that children develop due to child abuse and neglect have negative impacts that emerge throughout the lifespan, affecting their chances to succeed in school, work, and relationships. This continuing education course was developed using collaborative information from the US Department of Education, Administration on Children, Youth, and Families in order to provide information about the complex ways in which risk and protective factors interact within the context of a child’s family, community, and society to affect both the incidence and consequences of child abuse and neglect. Strategies to help educators and other significant adults implement a protective factors approach and work with family members to promote child well-being are addressed, as well practical ways to protect children.
