Managing Disclosures of Abuse: A Duty To Report – Training for Professionals

November 6, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Helping Clients Navigate Children's Services Concerns

Do you fully understand how to manage your Duty To Report disclosures of abuse/neglect made by children?  Are you aware of what might constitute suspected abuse/neglect situations (even historically)?  Do you feel comfortable knowing how to discuss your obligation to report with the person/family that is involved? Can you help the family with their fears and worries about what will happen after the report is made?

If you are a professional who works with children and/or their families, in any capacity (therapist, social worker, teacher, librarian, family support worker, medical professional, etc), this Training is a must!  Join us for this Managing Disclosures of Abuse: A Duty To Report Training session – learn more about your legal duty to report child abuse/neglect disclosures.  And learn how to protect yourself (in case you are called as a witness in criminal proceedings) and how to appropriately support the child/family you might be working with (even with ongoing Children Services or police investigations), after a disclosure has been made.

Join us via Zoom, on Monday, November 6th, from 11am to 1pm (MST) for Managing Disclosures of Abuse Made By Children.  This educational training session is designed to provide those professionals who work with children in any capacity (teachers, librarians, social workers, nurses, doctors, therapists, day care workers, ministerial workers, etc) with an understanding of their appropriate role and the protocols involved when working with anyone under the age of 18 who discloses an incident of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional/mental) or neglect.

This Training is being facilitated by Kim Silverthorn BA, RPC, MPCC, CT of Tacit KnowledgeKim is a therapist with 33 years of experience – she was employed directly by Children Services, and worked in partnership with Police Services during these cases, for more than 16 years.  The information in this session is sometimes specific to Alberta legislation, but includes information pertaining to legislation in all other provinces/territories as well.
