Mandated Reporter Training for Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect

Purpose:

To familiarize participants with their legal mandate for reporting suspected child abuse and neglect as well as providing information to increase their recognition and response to child abuse and neglect.

Objectives:

  1. Know and understand the roles and responsibilities of mandated reporters under Maine Law.
  2. Recognize the possible behavioral indicators of child abuse.
  3. Know how to make a report of suspected child abuse and neglect.
  4. Develop increased understanding of the complexity of responding to child abuse and neglect by learning of possible outcomes when abuse/neglect is found by DHHS.

Confidentiality:

Clearly, abuse of any type is a very sensitive issue; therefore any materials, cases, or situations used throughout this training will be de-identified to maintain confidentiality.
