The intent of this capstone project is to raise awareness and educate the monolingual Hispanic community regarding what constitutes child abuse and neglect. This project will focus on physical abuse. I will discuss the possible consequences of physical punishment and why this form of discipline is used often in the monolingual Spanish- speaking community. In collaboration with the Monterey County Department of Social and Employment Services-Family and Children's Services (DSES-FCS), the Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC), and a local radio station, I created two Spanish radio commercials to raise the awareness of the monolingual Spanish-speaking community.
