A Course for Educators on Child Abuse and Neglect (from the ECIS website)

This free course is made available by the Commonwealth of Virginia's Department of Social Services, and is specifically designed for educators. It covers the recognition of child abuse, and provides a framework for hor to report it and respond to it. Although the course is specific to the commonwealth of Virginia (US), the content is applicable across a broad spectrum of international schools. Reporting is something that, sometimes due to unique circumstances in locations where our schools are located, is best done by reaching out to a local Embassy first, to seek guidance on how to handle a reporting structure. The task force is working on providing guidance in this regard, and there should be a report on this matter in spring 2015.
