Time is running out! Register at one of the locations in NYS to participate in the November 6, 2019 webcast "Town Hall Meeting: Child Abuse and Maltreatment". As a Mandated Reporter you are required, by law, to report cases of suspected child abuse or maltreatment to the Statewide Central Register. Knowing when to make that call can be a difficult decision, and certainty about what happens next may make it seem more intimidating. During this unique training, staff from the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS), Child Protective Services (CPS) and the Statewide Central Register (SCR), will analyze case studies and highlight red flags with professionals from the child care community. At your site, you'll dissect the case studies and discuss your findings with your group. Then all participants around the state will tune in to hear what the experts have to say about the case studies and what you can do to avoid similar risky situations. This training will cover the OCFS training topic areas of statutes and regulations pertaining to child abuse and maltreatment; child abuse and maltreatment identification and prevention and safety and security procedures. The webcast is going to be packed with valuable information that will help fulfill your responsibilities as a Mandated Reporter of child abuse and maltreatment. You're not going to want to miss out, so register today!
