Neglect is the continuing failure to meet a child’s basic needs. It can often lead to other forms of abuse or harm – or even death – and it is the most common form of abuse.

This course will enable learners to identify neglect behaviours in children, and examines how to therapeutically assist the recovery of the child.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To understand neglect and both the physical and psychological effects on the child
