Diploma in Safeguarding and Welfare
Child abuse refers to the abuse of children in physical, sexual and emotional forms, which can lead to the death, injuries and emotional damage among children. In US alone, reports of more than 3 million child abuse cases are recorded every year. Impact of child abuse may be short term or long term and can even result in death. Many child protection facilities and institutes have been set up in order to provide assistance to the affected children and youth. Child protection campaigns have also been introduced in order to create awareness among the general public regarding child abuse.
It is important to identify child abuse early on in order to provide the necessary support and help needed for the victims. If child abuse is not identified or neglected, it may affect the development and social life of children in the long run. Therefore, it is important for everyone to be informed regarding child abuse, irrespective of their academic and professional backgrounds. However, knowledge and skills regarding child abuse will be essential if you have planned on looking for a job related to child protection or if you are already have a child protection related job. You can also launch child abuse awareness campaigns and child abuse protection facilities with this diploma.
