Product Description

Don't let inconsistent assessments or lack of training put a child in danger.

As advocates for the youngest and most vulnerable; educators, healthcare providers, and law enforcement professionals are the best defense against child abuse and neglect.

Join advocate Dianne Ditmer for this must-have seminar where you'll learn how to make the most of your healthcare training to protect against this ever-growing epidemic.

Approximately 10 million children are victims of abuse or neglect every year in the United States, but tragically, many wounds and injuries go undetected. A subtle injury of seemingly little medical consequence may be extremely important to medical personnel, protective services investigators and law enforcement. Find out what your role is in all of this.

Sentence to introduce bullets:

  • The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act as guidelines that apply to all 50 states in the U.S. 
  • The medical-forensic examination as the basis for pediatric assessment.
  • Patient, parental, and environmental factors that increase the risk for child abuse.
  • Strategies for interviewing pediatric patients. 
  • The significance of developmental milestones in relationship to wounds indicative of abuse or neglect. 
  • 3 characteristic burn patterns that result from intentional immersion.
  • Compare and contrast indicators of physical neglect and emotional neglect.

  • PLUS: Your legal reporting obligations -- you can't ignore these responsibilities.
