About this Webinar
This webinar will introduce Mandated Child Abuse Reporting Law: Developing and Implementing Policies and Training, a reference guide that was developed for Title X grantees and sub-recipient agencies. This webinar will familiarize you with this guide so you are more equipped to develop or revise your clinic reporting policies and staff training procedures. You will learn where to find state child abuse reporting laws and elements to look for in those laws that will help clinic staff understand their reporting obligation. Practical suggestions on implementing these legal obligations will also be included. Note that specific guidance on individual state law will NOT be covered because state laws vary across the country.

Who Should Attend
Designed for staff that are responsible for developing mandatory reporting policies, procedures or trainings. They may include administrators, managers and select providers involved in policy development and training.

1. Identify the four common components of mandatory child abuse reporting.
