WE CAN HELP: Specialized Curriculum for Educators on the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect.
McCaffrey, Mary; Tewey, Stephanna
The multimedia package for educators was developed from 22 demonstration training projects and is on the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. The package contains two filmstrips with associated tape cassettes, a trainer's guide, and individual packets for ten training sessions (each containing transparencies, worksheets, and resource materials). Training information and suggested activities are given for each of the 10 sessions covering the following eight topics: the problem/responsibility (basic information about child abuse and understanding of the educator's responsibilities); identification (recognition of the indicators of child abuse and neglect); community response (relationship of the educator to other community agencies); policy (development of school policy in the context of a coordinated community effort); the school based team (for the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect); school programing (use of school programs and educators to provide support services to the child and family); the community team (the position of the educator on the community multidisciplinary team); and community outreach. The two filmstrips consider what the educator sees and what the educator can do. Both individual and program evaluation materials are provided. (PHR)
