of appropriate coping skills.

”If students can be informed about the dangers of shaking a baby before
they are faced with an inconsolable crying infant, the problem can be
prevented. The school-based curriculum provides a ready-made way for
teachers to immediately create an effective teaching experience for
students with no barriers to implementation.”
