Train anyone to identify, interpret, and report child abuse - EMTs, doctors, nurses, police officers, social workers, and other mandated reporters - with this innovative set of training materials.Written by leading experts in various areas of child maltreatment, these comprehensive training materials are arranged in three modules that seek to provide professionals and those they train with the most comprehensive curriculum available. Each module contains an instructor's manual with 36 individual lesson exercises to accompany each section. These materials guide instructors through the preparation of a lesson and provide visual presentation aids in the form of color images, diagrams, and tables.The three volumes of the training modules cover the following topics: Physical Signs of Abuse; Sexual, Emotional & Psychological Abuse; and, Investigation, Care & Prevention.Physical Signs of Abuse uses color photographs and radiographs to teach students to distinguish abusive from non abusive injuries. Using real case studies, this module provides practical insight into the process of confirming suspicions of abuse.Sexual, Emotional & Psychological Abuse teaches students to identify the signs of sexual abuse. With sections that discuss the signs of at-risk youth and resulting psychological disorders, this section provides clear guidance for identifying sources of trauma that remain difficult to detect.Investigation, Care & Prevention teaches the steps to take when abuse or neglect is discovered, the details of the agencies and procedures involved in mandated reporting, and strategies for preventing child abuse.The new "Child Maltreatment: A Clinical Guide and Reference, 3rd Edition" serves as the official companion textbook for the Training Modules. With 43 chapters and 1000 pages from 76 contributors, this fully updated text is a comprehensive textbook on child abuse. It is available as part of a two-volume set.
