Training in the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect. The User Manual Series.
Broadhurst, Diane D.; MacDicken, Robert A.
Intended primarily for persons or agencies responsible for providing training to professionals and interested citizens involved in delivery of services to abusive and neglectful families, the manual addresses the importance of training in the identification, reporting, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of child abuse and neglect. Chapters focus on the folliwng topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): why training in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect is vital (mandatory reporting, professional responsibility, and benefit to families in stress); when training should be conducted (preservice training, inservice training, and continuing education); who should be trained (reaching all levels, interdisciplinary training, and using the existing structure); who should train (screening the trainer, employing a multidisciplinary approach, and sources of trainers); the training program design (content, structure, evaluation, and cost); and training resources (staff, materials, and funding). Among the eight appendixes are federal standards applicable to training, a listing of physical and behavioral indicators of child abuse and neglect, and suggested training techniques. (DB)
