  • Course ID 1071847

  • Release Date August 2017 This course offers an overview of the prevalence of child abuse and barriers to reporting it, indicators of the various types of child abuse, and instructions on making a proper report and respond to the needs of your school community. The course is instructive on the reporting of all types of abuse, but places an emphasis on sexual abuse because it is unique in that it requires secrecy and manipulation. By watching for vulnerabilities among students, the emotional and behavioral manifestations of sexual abuse, and the behaviors of the adults who care for our children, school communities will be better situated to report it, and to prevent it from occurring in the first place.

  • After completing this module, you will be familiar with:

    • The prevalence of abuse

    • Types and indicators of abuse

    • Characteristics of abusers

    • Proper response and reporting procedures

  • A printable certificate will be available upon completing the course.
