Centerstone, a national leader in behavioral health care, will host a free, virtual Child Abuse Prevention training on April 27 from 10-11:30 a.m.
As adults we can make a difference in the life of a child by taking the time to recognize and respond to signs and symptoms associated with child abuse and neglect. This training will provide an overview of the physical and behavioral signs, causes and dynamics associated with abuse, as well as what to do if you suspect a child is being hurt or neglected.
Objectives of the training include:
The presenter of the training will be Amber Anderson, the prevention specialist with Prevent Child Abuse Illinois.
