The evidence about the harms of hitting children for punishment is overwhelming, and the time to change these norms, at a societal level, is now. Progress will require collective efforts by adults and leaders in our national community.

This webinar will address:
1) The need for ending corporal punishment (CP); child health professionals’ attitudes about CP; key roles that professionals play in ending CP.
2) Clear developmental and age-appropriate alternatives to hitting/spanking; de-escalation strategies to prevent the hitting of children; interventions that can be implemented at various “spectrum of prevention” levels to reduce use of CP with emphasis on those that can be implemented broadly to shift population norms; examples of successful norms change; “No Hit Zones”.

Catherine Taylor, PhD, LCSW, MPH, is a Professor in the Boston College School of Social Work. Her research agenda is focused on the primary prevention of violence, especially violence that impacts children. More about Dr. Taylor: faculty, publications
