This webinar will discuss risks for psychological and emotional harm to children, with an emphasis on children who reside in a home or community where violence occurs. Common misconceptions will be addressed, including the idea that a child can be “too young” to be impacted by exposure to violence, physically observable signs of injury are an appropriate estimator of victimization, and the idea that children who hear a violent act occur in the home but do not actually see it are not significantly harmed by it. Other topics to be discussed include: the multiple forms of child emotional maltreatment, toxic stress and its effects on child development, child-caregiver attachment, “unavailable parenting”, the effects of witnessing threats or violence against animals in the home or community, and caregiver risk factors for perpetrating emotional maltreatment.

 

 


 

The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The National Law Enforcement Center on Animal Abuse was established by the National Sheriffs’ Association to provide law enforcement officers information on the realities of animal abuse and to promote their proactive involvement in the enforcement of animal abuse laws in their communities. Through our partners, the Center will serve as an information clearinghouse and forum for law enforcement on the growing problem of animal abuse and its link to other types of crimes, including violence against humans. The Center also promotes officer safety in officer-dog encounters through continuing education and training.
