"This is the first in a series designed for training the professions in the recognition and reporting of child abuse. Patrick Watson is host of this docu-drama which follows a specific case, re-enacted. We get some background on the parents, and follow the case as the child's teachers, the police, the doctors, and the Children's Aid become involved. The host comments on the main issues and the various actions and interventions of the professionals. A manual for training professionals accompanies the seven-part series. Dr Robert Bates, pediatrician and Director of the child abuse program at the Hospital for Sick Children."
