Child Abuse and Neglect: A Source Book for Early Childhood Providers.
Authier, Karen
This resource handbook and workshop guide for early childhood educators and caregivers provides a wide range of information about the abuse and neglect of children. Section I, which focuses on identification, reporting, and intervention, includes information about factors contributing to child abuse; short- and long-term effects; scope and definitions of abuse and neglect; reporting law and responsibility; the reporting process; and ways to maintain a relationship with the abusing or neglecting family after making a report. Section II, which concerns prevention, outlines ways in which an early childhood center can help prevent child abuse and neglect in the community; discusses ways to minimize risk of abuse in early childhood programs; and contrasts approved and disapproved discipline practices in day care centers. The brief, concluding Section III offers advice about what educators and caregivers should do if they are accused of child abuse or neglect. (RH)
