Managing Disclosures of Abuse Made By Children – Training for Professionals

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

Managing Disclosures of abuse made by children

There are some very specific procedures that must be followed (legally) whenever a child/youth shares a disclosure of an incident of abuse or neglect.  This kind of situation can be quite stressful for the professionals who have to manage the next steps in the disclosure process, especially when they know that Children’s Services, Police Services and the court system are also going to become involved, at least in some capacity.

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 session will also help professionals know how to effectively support that child/youth after the incident of abuse has been disclosed but while the matter is still being addressed legally/by Children Services.

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.

There is a registration fee for this Training ($75.00/person) which can be etransfered to counsellors@tacitknows.com.  (For groups of 5 or more participants who register together, this fee is $50/person.)  The Training is worth 2 hours of Continuing Education Credits (as approved by the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association).  Certificates will be available upon request, at no additional cost. And a cheat sheet of the Reporting Process will be made available to all participants, after the Training has been completed.
