And this is how I described the workshop we're going to do for the mid-Hudson Association for the Education of the Young Child in October...

The SKIPPER Initiative is dedicated to increasing awareness about the danger of shaking young children and educating parents and caregivers about how they can help protect children from injury. The workshop will discuss the causes and consequences of shaking injuries, coping strategies and present a positive approach providers can use to work with parents or other caregivers to prevent injury. The workshop will meet the new Section 380-a requirement for provider education about Shaken Baby Syndrome.
