Recognizing and Responding to Abuse from a Distance
Identifying abuse can be difficult to detect on messaging apps, phone calls or video conferences. Therefore, we must be extremely vigilant at looking for signs of potential abuse or neglect. Signs like the ones below MAY signal the presence of child abuse:
Karen Orser, our CEO, recently sat down with Kara-Leah Gonty, our Education Coordinator, to discuss what school support staff and the general public can do to recognize and respond to child abuse at this time.
We must work together to continue to provide the right types of support to vulnerable children and their families and remain alert to any indicator’s children may be unsafe at home.
