About the Course:
Reports of suspected child neglect make up more than three-quarters of all reports made to child protective services in any given year; 6 times more than reports of sexual abuse, and 5 times more than reports of physical abuse. However, neglect reports are least likely to be substantiated after investigation. The reality is that reporters of suspected child maltreatment struggle with appropriately identifying and reporting this type of maltreatment. This session will explore the legal and ethical obligations of professional reporters, especially as they relate to the concept of child neglect. Various types of child neglect, including physical neglect, medical neglect and educational neglect will be explored, along with a significant conversation around parental supervision and the use of corporal punishment. Practical strategies for intervention with families will be offered and discussed.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, Protecting Children from Child Neglect & Supporting Families created by Kathryn Krase, Ph.D., J.D., M.S.W. in 2022.
