A training for everyone working with youth.
This training will be specific to Minnesota State Law, but the basic principles and intent of mandated reporter laws will apply to everyone working with youth.
It is your ethical and legal responsibility to report maltreatment of youth. If you do not understand your legal responsibilities you are placing yourself and your organization at risk. A thorough understanding of mandated reporting is critical in youth work, yet it rarely gets the attention it deserves. Find out what you MUST do when you suspect maltreatment by any caregiver.
Everyone working with youth in Minnesota is a Mandated Reporter and the laws are ever-changing. This webinar will cover the fundamentals on reporting child maltreatment allegations for mandated reporters. It will encompass an approach that focuses on Minnesota law, but participants should be mindful that each locality may have additional information pertinent to making a child maltreatment allegation at the local level.
This is a training everyone should have, so let us bring it right to you!
- Understand how the reporting process is structured statewide in MN
- Define the basic elements that go into making a child maltreatment allegation report
- Learn how to make appropriate child maltreatment reports most likely to be accepted by a local county social service agency
