Identification of Topics for a Teacher Training and Resource Manual for a Child Abuse Primary Prevention Program. Curriculum and Program Planning Seminar.
Carraway, Cassandra Todd
The Garvey School District in Rosemead, California, received a grant from the Los Angeles County Office of Education to implement a Primary Prevention Program for child abuse and neglect. In order to implement the program, the District's Child Abuse Advisory Board was charged with the responsibility of developing suitable topics for a Teacher Training and Resource Manual. A list of topics compiled from a review of the literature was analyzed, discussed, and approved. The selected topics included the following: (1) the definition of a "Primary Prevention Program" (i.e., a training and educational program for children directed at preventing the occurrence of child abuse and at reducing the general vulnerability of children); (2) major goals of the program (i.e., to provide training sessions in the area of child abuse prevention to students, staff, and parents); (3) physical and behavioral indicators of child abuse, including physical abuse, physical neglect, sexual abuse, and emotional maltreatment; (4) the Garvey School District Board's policy on reporting child abuse; (5) cultural considerations related to the child-rearing practices of Hispanics and Asians; (6) supportive intervention techniques to be used by teachers; and (7) community resources.
