Clark County Cooperative Extension will offer the Child Safety and Welfare program during the first fall session at the Valley View Recreation Center.  This program is designed for parents to increase their awareness and knowledge of all safety/welfare issues: Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), Child Abuse Awareness, Anger Management and Positive Guidance.

The Child Safety and Welfare program is scheduled for Wednesday evenings beginning September 11 from 6-8 p.m. This is a 4 week session. The Valley View Recreation Center is located at 500 Harris Street, Henderson, NV 89015. Register online through the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation website.

Shaken Baby Syndrome increases participants’ (parents or other caregivers) awareness and knowledge of SBS.  Child Abuse Awareness helps parents or other caregivers recognize child abuse and neglect.  Anger Management provides parents with research-based information related to anger management and child abuse prevention.  Positive Guidance helps build parents positive guidance skills. The materials are also available in Spanish.
