Poly-victimization: Childhood Exposure to Multiple Forms of Victimization with Sherry Hamby and Heather Turner
Far too many children are exposed to abuse, violence, and crime. A new emphasis on what is being called “poly-victimization” can help professionals identify the most endangered children and youth, provide the most appropriate interventions, and protect them from additional harm. Poly-victimization refers to the experience of multiple victimizations of different kinds (for example, sexual abuse, physical abuse, bullying, witnessing family violence, and exposure to community violence). This EduNet Webinar provides participants with information on the latest research on the prevalence, characteristic, and effects of poly- victimization on children and adolescents.
Midwest Regional CAC is proud to offer Continuing Education Credits all EduNet Webinars.
