Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect in a VIRTUAL World
In 2020, everyone’s world was changed. Overnight, we went from in person everything, to shelter in place in our homes. Since then, our lives have seemed to hang in the balance and we are constantly adapting to our new reality since the pandemic hit. What hasn’t changed is the child abuse and neglect happening in our communities. Join us for a look at how the pandemic has shifted priorities and concerns in the child abuse and neglect fields and how we can continue to recognize and respond to child abuse and neglect in a virtual world. This training will address trends in child abuse and neglect cases, review the signs of child abuse and neglect, and introduce you to ways you can recognize abuse or neglect if you are meeting with a child or families virtually. This training will also offer opportunities for learners to engage and discuss new strategies on interacting with children and families virtually through various platforms.

Presenter will be Kristin Kaufman, Home Visiting Specialist, Prevent Child Abuse Illinois
