This curriculum is designed for organizations seeking training for professionals working with children on a regular basis. Utilizing a video-based format, the Recognizing and Reporting curriculum educates child-serving professionals or volunteers on the basic issues of child abuse, how to recognize physical and behavioral signs of the varying forms of child abuse, and how to make a report.
