Recognizing and responding appropriately to signs of child abuse requires a discerning eye and a compassionate heart. Geared toward client services managers, ministerial staff, teachers, youth workers, and front-line care providers, this interactive and engaging three-hour training will provide attendees with resources for identifying and reporting signs of child abuse, including:

– What abuse looks like

– What to do if you suspect abuse

– How to report abuse

– What kind of policies organizations need to have in place to protect themselves

– Resources for support
