Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act

by No Longer Silenced Movement

January 31st 1974 was the day that the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act came into play. It’s hard to believe how truly recent that day is. Along with the law, the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect was created, as a resource for families.

Spend this month getting to know and understand the laws surrounding child abuse, and know what to look out for.
