Child Maltreatment Reflection Paper

Child Maltreatment Reflection Paper 

Complete a 2-3 page paper reflecting on readings in the text pertaining to child maltreatment and how they align with (or not) what is presented from professional experiences of instructor & guest speakers. If students have already encountered identification, assessment or treatment related to child maltreatment in an internship/volunteer capacity, that may be referenced as well. The daily news cycle is filled with policy changes or government approaches to social problems. Connect your reflection on child maltreatment to current events, especially ‘macro’ issues, such as recent policy changes at a state or federal level (make sure sources are cited). Share your thoughts on whether or not these current events align with best practices in addressing child maltreatment.
