Did you know that 1 in 4 children in the U.S. experience maltreatment? Unfortunately, many abused children experience negative physical, mental and social outcomes. Children need to be able to talk with supportive adults. However, it can be challenging for adults to know what to say when children share their experience with abuse.
In this webinar, you'll learn from Michelle Fingerman, Larel Jacobs and Dr. Laura Schwab-Reese about their work creating evidence-based conversation strategies for the National Child Abuse Hotline. They'll summarize their research on what kids say is helpful and what is harmful. They'll also share a general framework for these conversations, including several strategies that work well for any conversation about maltreatment.
