CDC Hosts Webinar to Discuss Essentials for Childhood
Please join us for a discussion of Essentials for Childhood: Steps to Create Safe, Stable, and Nurturing Relationships and Environments
Date: Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Time: 3:00–4:00pm EST
Child abuse and neglect poses serious threats to the health, well-being, and safety of our nation’s children. Preventing child maltreatment is a priority of CDC’s Injury Center. We believe safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments (SSNRs) are essential to prevent child maltreatment and to ensure children reach their full potential.
In January, the Injury Center’s Division of Violence Prevention released a new document, Essentials for Childhood: Steps to Create Safe, Stable, and Nurturing Relationships for Children. Essentials for Childhood outlines strategies for stakeholders to promote safe, stable and nurturing relationships for children and is organized around four goals areas:
- Goal 1: Raise awareness and commitment to promote safe, stable and nurturing relationships and prevent child maltreatment
- Goal 2: Use data to inform actions
- Goal 3: Create the context for healthy children and families through norms change and programs
- Goal 4: Create the context for healthy children and families through policies
- Sandra Alexander, MEd—Expert Consultant; Division of Violence Prevention, CDC
- Malia Richmond-Crum, MPH– Health Scientist, Division of Violence Prevention, CDC
