This federally funded training module is the fourth in a series of modules intended to raise public awareness and understanding of child maltreatment, its causes, protective factors that help shield children and families, and manageable steps that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of child neglect. The training is intended for use with multiple audiences, including the general public, students, parents, caregivers, and practitioners. This module is designed to accompany a slide-show and a 12-minute video presentation that discusses the causes of neglect as well as some of the ways neglect can be prevented in families, communities, and society; the four areas where prevention can be most effective in reducing child neglect; interventions that can be implemented at the individual, family, community, and societal level that can reduce the likelihood of child neglect; and the application of the theory of “The Power of One” to the prevention of child neglect. Instructions are provided on presenting the information to individuals, small groups, and large groups, and resources are listed. Questions for discussion and for a reflection journal are included, as well as a manageable steps checklist for preventing child neglect.
