For this task, imagine that you have been asked to present a workshop on child abuse prevention and recognition to child service professionals in your area. Your workshop will focus on and include the following areas:
Definitions and types of child abuse and neglect
Impact of child abuse on various aspects of human development.
Who commits child abuse and why? (Include any known gender or socioeconomic factors.)
What are the responsibilities for reporting child abuse in your state?
How might this be different according to the role of the individual (educator, lawyer, clergy, physician, caseworker, etc.)? Suggestions for prevention or early detection
Interactive vignette: Include at least one brief, one-two paragraph vignette surrounding the issue of child abuse. Prepare 2-3 questions you would ask in the workshop, asking the individuals to analyze the event (hint: did abuse take place, if so, what type, who has to report, etc.).
