ATLANTA, GA, July 7, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), an online child care education provider dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, is proud to introduce HLTH112: Recognition and Reporting of Child Abuse to the online childcare training course catalog.

Childminders often find themselves at the forefront of the fight against child abuse and neglect. This is because, apart from family members, childminders are likely to spend more time with children than anyone else. Consequently, they are often in a position to identify possible signs of abuse and neglect. In addition to moral obligations, childminders are also legally obliged to report suspected signs of abuse to the appropriate authorities.

It is also important for childminders to know what child abuse and preventative strategies entail, as unfortunately they are sometimes reported as offenders. This is why continuous training on this topic is essential to keep children safe. A caregiver can be the one who helps a child out of an abusive situation. Their actions will serve the child’s best interests and can save a life. ECE professionals have the power to change the lives of all children, 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 child abuse at different ages. Participants will also gain an understanding of their responsibilities as a mandate reporter of child abuse and neglect.

“Child abuse occurs at every socio-economic level, across ethnic and cultural boundaries, within all religions and at all levels of education,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “Therefore, all teachers and caregivers should be aware of the signs and reporting procedures, regardless of where they live or work.”

HLTH112: Recognition and Reporting of Child Abuse is a two-hour, beginner-level course and grants 0.2 IACET CEU upon successful completion. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can sign up for professional development courses at no additional cost once they are logged into their CCEI account. Unsubscribed users can purchase childcare training courses as block hours through CCEI online enrollment.
