Free Child Abuse and Neglect Training For Staff

As an afterschool provider, it is your job to provide a safe environment for the children and families you and your staff serve. 
Part of keeping children safe is being able to recognize possible signs of abuse and neglect. 
Providers  are mandated to report possible  abuse and neglect. 
The following training modules are designed to tell providers the policy requirements,  help providers to recognize what to look for, understand the procedure for reporting a potential incident and to cover what happens after an incident is reported.


Reporting Child Abuse And Neglect 

These training materials have been developed to provide local school districts and child care programs with comprehensive reference materials to assist in training personnel, volunteers and interns about the requirement to report potential abuse and neglect child situations as required in N.J.A.C. 6A:16-11 

The Departments of Education (DOE) and Children and Families (DCF) convened a DOE/DCF workgroup to address issues surrounding the interface between education and child welfare systems. One of the key efforts of this group was the development of standardized training materials for personnel on the identification and reporting of child abuse and neglect to meet the requirements at N.J.A.C. 6A:16-11 Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect.

The New Jersey   Office of Licensing has determined that these Child Abuse and Neglect training modules referenced may be used for meeting the Licensing requirements for staff development, 10:122-4.7(b)2iv.

Each module has been developed using Microsoft PowerPoint and includes a voice narration.  The PowerPoint slides are not “timed” and must be advanced manually. 
This will enable the audience to complete their discussion, as needed, for each individual slide before moving to the next.  Programs are also permitted to download the modules and burn them to a CD ROM for portability and ease of use, if so desired. The modules are categorized as follows:

Module I: Policy requirements
Module II: What to look for…
Module III: How to report…
Module IV:  What happens after reporting?
