Recognizing and Responding to Child Abuse
On February 23, 2014, Dr. Victor Vieth, Director of the National Child Protection Training Center, presented on how to identify, prevent, and respond to child abuse. His presentation slides are available for review.
To determine the appropriate agency to call for filing a report of suspected or known child abuse, search the Child Welfare Information Gateway. If there is insufficient information to form a reasonable suspicion, but you are still concerned, the ChildHelp USA National Child Abuse Hotline (800-422-4453) provides guidance to anonymous callers who are considering filing a report.
