Our Mandated Reporter Training program trains child-serving professionals (mandated reporters) in the health, law enforcement, education and social service fields to recognize, identify and respond to suspected child abuse and neglect. Trainers visit mandated reporters in their workplaces and at relevant conferences, ensuring that they are well-trained in child abuse issues and identification and understand reporting procedures. We synchronize this work with the work of our Child Safety Awareness program, in order to ensure that children who disclose abuse after participating in child safety awareness training will be supported by their teachers and school environments.
Our SafeStart program offers free training about the impact of violence on children for staff at agencies that serve San Francisco families. Trainings are available in English and Spanish.
