Domestic (intimate partner) violence is an international health care and human rights issue affecting millions of people every day.

Older adults today are vibrant, independent, living longer, and in better health than their ancestors.

  • Contact Hours: 2.00

  • AOTA CEUs: 0.20

Child abuse is a national and international issue that has serious long-term consequences for the child and the community. A social problem that has existed for thousands of years, child abuse in all its forms first became a topic of national interest in the 1960s with the advocacy of Henry Berge, founder of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Today, there is a system of laws in all 50 states that now define what constitutes abuse and neglect and who is mandated to report abuse.

Pediatric Abusive Head Trauma (Shaken Baby Syndrome)

  • Contact Hours: 2.00

  • AOTA CEUs: 0.20

The prevention of child maltreatment, particularly the reduction of abusive injuries and their consequences, is an important public health concern. Even when they do not result in death, serious traumatic brain injuries in children have profound lifetime consequences. The crime of pediatric abusive head trauma (PAHT) is a preventable and severe form of child abuse. In the United States, child abuse is the third leading cause of all head injuries, and its prevention and treatment present a challenge to health care providers.

Sexual Assault, Gender Violence, and Rape

  • Contact Hours: 2.00

  • AOTA CEUs: 0.20

Rape or sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. These forms of sexual violence are among the most underreported crimes in both the United States and the world due to the intensely difficult nature of the crimes. Understanding the various forms of sexual violence, the concept of consent, and the short- and long-term impacts of sexual assault on individuals, families, and communities is essential to preventing this form of violence.
