Child abuse awareness is an important social responsibility. For mandated reporters, education on the definition of child abuse, types of child abuse, process of reporting, etc., is necessary to ensure that we are vigilant and ready to address issues, even if just suspected. This program is designed to provide an overview of child abuse based on the most recent Pennsylvania updates to the Child Protective Services Law (most of which took effect December 31, 2014).
In order to successfully complete this education, you must:

  • Watch the entire Video Presentation
