Description

The epidemic of child abuse in the U.S. (>670,000 confirmed annually) causes massive harm to children and the adults they become. Surprisingly, 10 million American children, and that infants and toddlers account for >75% of all deaths related to child abuse. Results from our parent randomized controlled trial show that the online iLookOut for Child Abuse (iLookOut) Core training significantly improves ECPs' knowledge and attitudes about child abuse/reporting (effect size=1.09 and 0.66, respectively). Preliminary data from this trial also suggest that (compared to standard training) iLookOut improves ECPs' actual reporting of suspected abuse: i) reports are more likely to be screened-in for investigation by child protection services (86% vs 70%, p
