Child Abuse and Neglect Curriculum in Schools.
Broadhurst, Diane; And Others
The booklet presents a recommended course outline for a course in child abuse and neglect in schools of education. The course may be adapted to a semester or quarter schedule and be used whole or in part. An introduction gives a rationale for inclusion of child abuse and neglect curriculum in teacher training programs. The course is divided into four major sections (sample subtopics in parentheses): nature of abuse and neglect (historical overview, forms, and origin and psychodynamic bases); educators' role (role of educators in identification and reporting, state child protection statutes, and interagency communication and cooperation); cross cultural aspects (nature of cultural differences, interracial dynamics and concepts, and child rearing practices among different ethnic groups); and practicum experience. Numbers following curriculum section topics correspond with readings in the respective reference section. (DB)
