Mandatory Child Abuse Reporter Training

Professionals and volunteers working with children may suspect situations of child abuse and neglect, or even have a child disclose abuse to them. Sometimes, barriers such as fear of reporting, the inability to recognize all forms of child maltreatment, and vague institutional policies may prevent professionals and volunteers from making a report of child abuse. It’s everyone’s job to keep kids safe.  In addition, people who work with, or care for children need to remember that YOU may be a child’s only advocate at the time you report possible abuse or neglect.
