Working Together to Identify and Respond to Child Victims of AbuseBook - 2016
Everyone has a role to play in identifying and responding to child abuse and family violence. This book is written for professionals and paraprofessionals who work with children and their families, and post-secondary students. Early childhood educators, teachers, nurses, social workers, and others are in unique positions to identify children and families at risk for abuse, and to report their suspicions to the appropriate authorities. They are also in unique positions to respond to children and families when abuse has occurred, and help children and families through the healing. They are well placed to educate and support children and families, and possibly prevent child abuse and violence. Reaching Out provides information clearly defining the roles and responsibilities of those providing services to children and families with respect to child abuse, neglect, and family violence.
