Summary

Professionals who come into contact with children in the course of their everyday activities play a vital role in identifying and assisting children who are victims of abuse or neglect. As a result, New York State law requires these professionals to take a course on identifying and reporting child abuse and neglect so that they are informed of the law and their responsibility. However, due to child abuse cases perpetrated by school staff falling through the cracks, The New York State Department of Education has made updates to the Education Law 23-B Reporting Requirements. These updates have set forth policies and procedures when reporting suspected cases of child abuse by a school staff individual. This two-hour training teaches mandated reporters how to identify signs of abuse and neglect and understand their legal obligations for reporting. Through lecture, discussion, and practical application, participants will leave the workshop better prepared to handle child protection issues that arises. Participants will receive two certificates of completions, both recognized by the New York State Department of Education.
