Call for Better Educated Case Workers

"A task force looking at ways to more effectively curb child abuse and neglect in Arkansas heard Friday that more and better educated case workers are needed in the field. Victor Vieth, director of the American Prosecutors Research Institute's National Center for Prosecution of Child Abuse, said young social workers are too often thrown into investigating difficult, often horrific child abuse cases with little or no real-life training. One goal, Vieth said, should be to expand college and university programs to include courses on abuse and neglect, which he said would give students important information before they hit the streets."
