Learn how to recognize indicators of abuse when caring for a child and how to begin the healing process. According to research from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than 700,000 incidences of child abuse are reported each year in the United States with more than a fourth of them being ages of three and under. It is believed that the reporting of any type of abuse - for both children and adults - is extremely low, conservative figures indicate that one out of three or one out of four children experience abuse by the age of eighteen. The lifetime financial consequences of child abuse cost more than $124 billion dollars per victim. With staggering healthcare costs, increased risk of certain diseases, impact on relationships and life goals, as well as the impact on society, identifying the pain is the beginning of healing. A professional recognizing the indicators of abuse and helping those to start a path to healing may actually help change the world one person at a time. Since a small portion of behavioral healthcare and medical professionals are ever taught to recognize those with abuse histories, this topic can help give you the essential tools to recognize child abuse and the ravages of that abuse on the client's mental, physical and financial health.
