Child Abuse Prevention Optional Unit. Teacher Resource Manual.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
This teacher resource manual complements the optional Child Abuse Prevention Unit of the Elementary Health Program for schools in Alberta, Canada. The activities and suggestions contained in the manual are intended to be supportive, not prescriptive. The stated goal of this unit is to enable all children to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to help protect themselves from abuse, and to assist those children who are being abused to seek help by trusting their feelings, acting assertively and effectively in problem situations, and seeking help from within their support system. This unit includes objectives from other areas of the health curriculum (self-esteem, respect for self and others, knowledge and care of one's body, awareness of feelings, and decision-making) as they apply to personal safety situations. Activities are described and grouped by grade level for grades one through six. Appendices include discussions of the dynamics of abuse, child protection legislation, detection and reporting of abuse; sample documents; and the United Nations Declarations of the Rights of the Child.
