Here you can view SBS videos without taking the SBS "In-Service" Course for credit
Below are links that allow you to view all three (3) of our Shaken Baby (SBS) videos without having to participate in our Online SBS Course. Viewing the videos is FREE. Minnesota legislation requires MN caregivers to view the Dept. of Health's approved video annually, whereas SBS Certification training via the SBS Course is required every five (5) years.
The three (3) videos available in our SBS Course are listed below. Simply click the title of the video to open a new window.
* MN residents must view Video # 1 or BOTH parts (1 and 2) of Video # 2 to meet DHS’s ANNUAL requirement. * * Video # 3 is from a male’s perspective as SBS perpetrators are predominantly male.
Note: Approval by Minnesota’s Dept. of Health for video # 3 has not been sought.
Video # 3 has been part of this course since Jan. 2006.
NOTE: For your county's Licenser's inspection, as well as your program's Licenseholder and your own training files we provide a record-keeping document titled "Shaken Baby Video Viewing Confirmation".
