Identifying and Resolving Concerns

This activity outlines a five-step process child care health consultants can use to resolve a health or safety concern in a program setting.

Preventing Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma

Infant caregivers can experience high levels of stress in their work. Persistent infant crying, for example, may lead caregivers to shake young infants. This can result in head trauma that can damage a baby's brain. Learn ways to help infant caregivers and families recognize the signs and symptoms of head trauma, manage stress, and prevent abuse.
