Keeping children safe from abuse is an adult responsibility.

As professionals, it is our job to ensure children are safe in our care as well as recognize when the children we work with may be at risk of harm and know how we can best respond. Below are resources that professionals who often work with children may find helpful based around a child’s development and the environment in which you interact with them. The more prepared we feel as a professional, the better we can handle a family or child’s stressful or traumatic situation.
