Her career in child maltreatment began in 1987 in the Center for Child Abuse Prevention at the Children's Health Center of St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. Linda Shaw spent 20 years in New Jersey as a clinician/educator where she directed one of the four regional diagnostic and treatment centers on child abuse and neglect. Her clinical work included outpatient and inpatient consultations around abused children as well as comprehensive evaluations of foster children. She taught legal, child protection, medical, and educational professionals, as well as foster parents about child maltreatment. She chaired one of New Jersey's Regional Community Based Child Fatalities and Near Fatalities Review Teams, participated in Multidisciplinary Teams on Child Abuse and Neglect and was a trainer for the American Academy of Pediatrics-New Jersey chapter's PCORE EPIC CAN, a program educating community physicians and their office staff on child abuse and neglect. Faced with a lack of educational materials available for physicians on preventing child sexual abuse, she developed a series of handouts to be used at health maintenance visits, in English and Spanish, entitled, "WhatEvery Parent Should Know about Child Sexual Abuse".
