Becoming Heroes: Teachers Can Help Abused Children.
Bancroft, Sharon
Educational Leadership, v55 n2 p69-71 Oct 1997
Teachers can provide an effective counterbalance to the effects of an abusive home. They should not allow their skeptical attitudes, fear of liability, defensiveness about discipline, or religious and political affiliations to cloud their perceptions. Teachers can help hurting children by attending to their basic needs for warmth and security, reporting suspected abuse to authorities, and helping them become resilient. (MLH)
