Child abuse is expected to intensify during the present coronavirus pandemic, but children have less access to help. Reintegration into a “new normal” of life can bring up mental and emotional trauma as children try to grasp the situation. Dr. Randall shares on the mental, emotional, and physical dangers that children are facing. Discussion groups will consider practical steps and opportunities to minister to this very real and pressing need.
