Child Abuse Assessment and Reporting Online Text-based Home Course (7 CE)
Almost all mental health professionals, regardless of their work settings, will at some point in their career encounter child abuse or neglect situations. By law, mental health professionals are mandated to report suspected child abuse and neglect. There is a wide range of issues pertaining to child abuse/neglect intervention, which includes identification, assessment, reporting, and treatment. For these reasons, it is critical that mental health professionals be informed about the principles and strategies helpful in these areas.
In five sections this course covers historical perspective, an overview, four types of child abuse, therapist's responses (including reporting, assessment, and therapy), and issues of countertransference.
