Ep. 60: Child Abuse

About 700,000 children are abused in the U.S each year. As difficult as it maybe to think about children being mistreated, it’s even more important to raise awareness and empower everyone on ways to prevent it. On this episode of KIDing Around, Dr. Candice talks with Florida Department of Children and Families Administrator, Tina Morgan to do just that. Her dedication to the safety of children and passion for child abuse prevention has protected many children in Central Florida.

This episode covers:

-Definition of child abuse

-Types of child maltreatment

-The mandated reporter

-Strategies to prevent child abuse

-How to report it

Thank You, Tina Morgan!
