Child Abuse & Neglect – Causes, Consequences and Prevention

April 18, 2014

According to the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, nearly 2,000 Alaskan children were in out-of-home placement in January 2014. The vast majority of those cases were due to child abuse and neglect. Office of Children’s Services Director Christy Lawton puts it like this: ”Unfortunately, child abuse is happening in Alaska every day, in every community, among every ethnicity, and every socioeconomic group. It really does cross all lines, and that isn’t something the community always wants to acknowledge because it’s painful and people don’t want to hear about cases of child abuse and neglect.”

In recognition of April being National Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month, we will be joined in Studio by Dr. Matt Hirschfeld and Stephanie Monahan from the All Alaska Pediatric Partnership. We will be discussing the impacts of child abuse on our community and what we can do to help reduce and prevent child maltreatment. So why not tune in and learn more, Monday, April 21st at 2:00 PM, repeating that same evening at 9:00, on 91.1 KSKA, Anchorage.
