The Road to Innovation Podcast, Episode 13: Handling child abuse cases during COVID-19 pandemic
Several reports say child abuse is on the rise because in many cases they are in lockdown with their abusers. On this episode of The Road To Innovation we focus on the handling of child abuse cases during the pandemic. Our guest, Sarah Burns with Dallas Children Advocacy Center talks about the people involved in each case and what they are able to do and provide for children experiencing abuse. Burns also touches on marketing and the heightened importance of making sure there is consistent communication of the facts and transparency.
