This course has been designed specifically for mandated reporters of child abuse. In this 7.5-hour training you will learn about the definitions and indicators of child abuse and neglect. You will find out how a mandated reporter is different from a discretionary reporter, and what is reasonable suspicion of abuse. Reporting procedures will be discussed. You will have an opportunity to discuss particular questions you have about the reporting process and will learn about the continuum of responses and services available to families after child abuse reports are made. Instructors for this course will present information from the perspective of Humboldt County Child Welfare Services.
