New Course from ChildCare Education Institute on

ATLANTA, GA, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), an online childcare education provider dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, is proud to introduce HLTH112: Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse to the online childcare training course catalog.

Carers often find themselves on the front lines in the fight against child abuse and neglect. This is because, aside from family members, childcare providers probably spend more time with children than anyone else. As a result, they are often in a position to identify possible signs of abuse and neglect. Apart from moral obligations, childcare providers are also legally bound to report suspected signs of abuse to the proper authorities.

It is also important for childcare providers to know what child abuse involves and preventive strategies, because unfortunately they are sometimes reported as perpetrators. This is why ongoing training on this topic is essential to keep children safe. A caregiver can be the one to help a child out of an abusive situation. Their actions will serve the child’s best interests and may save a life. ECE professionals have the power to change all children’s lives, especially a neglected child who has experienced abuse.

This course covers important information about child abuse, including abuse and neglect. Throughout the course, students will learn about different types of child abuse, signs of abuse and neglect, and the behavioral, social, and emotional impact of abuse on children at different ages. Participants will also gain an understanding of their responsibilities as a mandated reporter of child abuse and neglect.

“Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural boundaries, within all religions and at all levels of education,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “That’s why all teachers and carers need to be aware of the signs and reporting procedures, regardless of where they live or work.”

HLTH112: Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse is a two-hour, beginner-level course and awards 0.2 IACET CEU upon successful completion. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can register for professional development courses at no additional cost when logged into their CCEI account. Users without subscriptions can purchase child care training courses as block hours through CCEI online enrollment.
