Health Educators and Child Maltreatment: A Curious Silence.
Sechrist, William
Journal of School Health, v70 n6 p241-43 Aug 2000
Encourages school health educators to include a unit on child abuse and neglect as a component of the health education curriculum, noting the current lack of attention to the subject, describing the magnitude of the problem, and explaining how early intervention can limit the damage. The paper likens such education to secondary prevention, a concept which professional health educators embrace. (SM)
