Preventing Child Neglect Training Series

Developed by CANTASD and the National Alliance of Children's Trust and Prevention Funds, the Preventing Child Neglect training series raises public awareness and understanding of child maltreatment, its causes, protective factors that help shield children and families, and manageable steps that each of us can take to help reduce the likelihood of child neglect. The training videos build upon each other and are designed to be viewed in sequential order. Each training video comes with a robust discussion toolkit that includes learning objectives, guidance for individual or group learning, a reflection journal, and links to additional resources.
