Child Abuse and Neglect: Identification of Child Abuse and Neglect

Course overview

In your role as a mandated reporter, it can feel like a lot of responsibility to identify child abuse and neglect. The warning signs of child abuse and neglect aren't always obvious. But by learning to recognize the signs of a problem, you can make a huge difference in a child's life. In this course, we'll talk about the signs and symptoms of neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse in children.
