Free Thu, Jul 23 from 11am - 1pm: Scapegoating - Beyond Physical Abuse via Zoom
Reports of children who are severely abused or even killed by a caregiver are tragic enough, but often the victim has been scapegoated in the family. This training will explain some of the experiences and abuse these scapegoated victims have endured and explain the ways they were treated differently. Unknowingly, siblings may even play a role in the abuse. We will focus on important questions to ask siblings and the type of environment these abused children lived in, along with other investigative techniques for these cases. Two cases will be profiled.
