Professionals who work with children are often confronted with youngsters who have suffered from chronic neglect. This form of maltreatment occurs far more frequently than sexual abuse or physical abuse, and the impact on a child's psychological well-being is often devastating. This one-day seminar is aimed at helping participants understand both the impact of neglect and how the impairments that arise due to chronic neglect can be resolved.
After attending this training, participants will be able to:
- Understand the impact of neglect on a child's development
- Assess the impact of neglect on a child's development
- Identify several psychological interventions for the treatment of neglected children
Participants will learn assessment strategies for determining how neglect has impacted a child, and become familiar with effective interventions for helping these children recover from this form of abuse.
