Child Abuse: An Overview for Mandated Reporters

Child Abuse: An Overview for Mandated Reporters


Child abuse awareness is an important social responsibility for all of us. For those of us who are 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 that arise, 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.
