Virtual Mandated Reporter Training

May 7 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

In our role as Prevent Child Abuse Cobb, Cobb Collaborative is presenting virtual Mandated Reporter Training. 

Child serving professionals and volunteers may suspect child abuse or have a child disclose abuse to them through their work with children. However, barriers such as fear of reporting, the inability to recognize all forms of child maltreatment, and vague organizational policies may prevent professionals from making a report of child maltreatment.

Mandated Reporter Training Objectives:

  • Understand how the laws around mandated reporting affect mandated reporters.
  • Describe the process for handling a disclosure of abuse.
  • Describe the mandated reporter’s role in reporting suspected abuse and neglect.
  • Identify physical and behavioral indicators of the legally recognized types of abuse and neglect in Georgia.
  • Identify which groups of children may be at higher risk of being abused or neglected.
  • Describe the steps necessary to report suspected abuse or neglect.
