CHCPRT001 - IDENTIFY AND RESPOND TO CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE AT RISK Formative Assessment - Activity 1 Question 1: - Withdrawn, unhappy and have suicidal behaviour. - Aggressive and have violent behaviour. - Mood Swings. - Bedwetting, sleeping problems and nightmares. - Detachment. - Sexual behaviour, language or knowledge that is not normal for the child's age. Question 2: Abuse or neglect should be reported when there are visible signs on the child such as physical signs on the body, clothing or hygiene. Other signs could also be the child’s behaviour or that the child will disclose that they have been abused either directly or indirectly through paintings or stories. These are all signs that are vital to report when working with children to the appropriate authorities and follow procedures and policies in doing so. The abuse can be any of the following parties, from a position of a caregiver, family member or family friend as well as alleged sexual abuse/contact by school staff or other children. Question 3: Non-invasive questions mean asking the child open-ended questions when there has been a suspected sign of abuse or neglect. That means asking questions that are mild and not direct or that can push the child as this is always a sensitive area. The open-ended questions can start with How, What, When, Why or tell me. For example, “What is the funniest thing you have done?”, the reply will not be a two word answer or a nod it will usually be a story or a sentence where in the case of suspected abuse/neglect it will be better that the child uses their own method of delivering the information across. This is also a way of creating a relationship with the child where they can open up and talk about whatever they are feeling to share with and adult. For example, when there a visible sign of abuse on the child’s arm in form of a bruise. The adult can ask, “Tell me how you got that” instead of asking “Who hurt you?” or “Where did you get that bruise from?” because the direct questions can be intimidating to respond to. Whereas when you ask the child “tell me how” it will be easier for the adult to observe the child’s behaviour and more likely know if they are lying about how they got it.

Formative Assessment – Activity 2 Question 1: When a child discloses directly to an adult that they have been sexually abused it is important to be calm and not show any emotions in front of the child (disgust, anger or stress) the adult needs to listen and ensure that they are safe to share their feelings/story in their own way. It is also vital to tell them that it was the right decision to tell an adult and that this will be reported to the authorities so they can help stop the abuse and it is not their fault that this has happened to them. At the same time the adult cannot ask or push the child for more information that can be deemed as an investigation. Therefore, the adult should be asking open-ended questions and let the child decide for themselves what information they want to share and how to share. This will mean that the adult did not influence or push the child for

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
