“I completed this online course as part of my employment requirements. I found the program to be comprehensive and detailed yet not overwhelming. The important descriptions and expectations are clearly outlined.”

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. The course 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 the first section, Recognizing and Preventing Child Abuse.  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 the section, Bullying: The Golden Rule Solution.

The third section of the course stresses the need to protect students from possible dangers in the online world. It helps to create awareness about the threats existing in the virtual world. This section on Internet Safety is filled with practical ideas and steps that teachers can take to ensure safety of the students who have access to the internet whether through classroom technology, at home or via their cell phones.

The course package Child Abuse Prevention will expand your knowledge regarding the dangers of child abuse and help you ensure a secure and safe environment for students.

    Teachers deal with the negative effects of bullying behaviors constantly and not as effectively as they could if they utilized some of the strategies explained in this course.

    I enjoyed hearing the methods that the founder of ‘Bullies to Buddies’ teaches. I don’t completely agree with his methods and statements and I personally feel that teachers who use his curriculum would do well to accompany it with other values or respect training for students. Nonetheless, I found several things that I will continue to think over and plan to use some of his phrases in the future to help children learn to diffuse situation.

    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.
