  • Explore current issues and new evidence pertinent to the identification, investigation, management, and prevention of child maltreatment
  • Discuss application of best evidence regarding current and emerging issues that impact the outcome of pregnancy for both the woman and infant
  • Practice skills and strategies to enhance the interaction between care provider and families
  • Explore the impact of trauma on the health of children and families and recognize the importance of a trauma-informed approach in clinical and non-clinical provision of care
