This workshop teaches adults how to recognize the signs and symptoms of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. Participants will learn facts about child abuse, how to recognize the physical and behavioral signs of the varying forms of abuse, as well as many important details of how to report suspected abuse. We will discuss risk factors, effects of abuse, how to handle disclosures and mandated reporting laws .
Training is free, available at any location and offers an hour of state of Texas mandated child abuse training for educators and licensed child care providers. It is also ideal for adult volunteer groups. Certificates of completion are provided upon request.
