Child Abuse Prevention (1 semester credit - Ashland University)

Protecting children is the role and responsibility of every adult. Be it in or outside of school, educators need to be aware of all red flags indicating a child is being abused. Child Abuse Prevention tackles this very sensitive issue and aims to equip teachers with the essentials of recognizing and preventing abuse to maintain safe and secure learning environments. 

Every educator should be aware of the different signs, symptoms and indicators of suspected child abuse and this is the focus of Child Abuse Prevention. The course highlights characteristics of abuse, as well as how an educator can respond. 

Bullying is a common issue that is seen in every classroom, school and playground. How do we respond to bullying or stop it? How do we help children who are on the receiving end and discipline the bullies? Learn more about this in Bullying: The Golden Rule Approach

  • The video content in this class was excellent. It helped to be able to see how these concepts would be applied in real situations. The only drawback was that the content was a bit shallow and redundant. It would have been helpful to go into some deeper issues with bullying instead of just how to handle surface-level behavior.
