Mandated Reporter Training

*DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11th, 2016
If you are someone who comes into contact with children as part of your work, you are a mandated reporter who is required by law to report suspected child abuse. It is vitally important that you understand how to recognize child abuse and how to make reports that are timely, complete and accurate.
The Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance is the recognized leader in Pennsylvania for mandated reporter training. Their training reviews the elements of child abuse, including the legal definitions of a child, perpetrator, and categories and indicators of abuse. The training provides an overview of mandated reporting obligations, including how to make a report, protections for those who report, and the liability for failing to report.
Participants receive resources and reference materials to take with them after training. PFSA’s curriculum is approved for Act 48 credits. This training meets requirements under Act 126 (Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse requirement) and Act 31 for required training of mandated reporters.
IMPORTANT: In order to receive credit, you must register at least two weeks in advance and attend the entire workshop.
