The Educator's Role in the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect.
Broadhurst, Diane D.
The manual delineates the roles of the educator in child abuse and neglect identification, treatment, and prevention. Chapter I addresses the nature, extent, causes, and effects of child abuse and neglect. Chapter II explains why educators should be involved with discussion of legal and ethical issues relating to the problem. A third chapter points out indicators of physical abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, and emotional maltreatment. Federal, state, and local policies and procedures regarding the reporting of child abuse and neglect cases are outlined in Chapter IV. Chapter V describes what the schools can offer in terms of support for the child, the parent, and the family; and Chapter VI considers school based programs, school community programs, and individual action geared to prevention. Appended are standards applicable to the manual on the educator's role and an outline of a model child abuse and neglect policy for schools. (SBH)
