This is the first of a five-part webinar series entitled "Essentials for Childhood."

Child maltreatment is a significant public health problem. It is also a preventable one. Essentials for Childhood: Assuring Safe, Stable, Nurturing Relationships and Environments for All Children is CDC's framework for preventing child maltreatment before it starts. State health departments play a critical role in promoting evidence-based strategies to prevent child maltreatment.

This webinar will review CDC's Essentials for Childhood initiative, share Essentials for Childhood resource materials and CDC's work to disseminate them, and demonstrate through examples from several participating states how state health departments can use Essentials in their work to achieve collective impact for promoting safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments and preventing child maltreatment.

Participants will learn:
Why Essentials for Childhood is CDC's vision and framework for child maltreatment prevention;
Four key goal areas and action steps in each that can help frame collective action work for prevention; and
How state health departments and their partners are using Essentials for Childhood in community efforts for preventing child maltreatment and adverse childhood experiences.
