This year's focus:
Mandated Reporter Training
Certain professionals are required by law to report suspected child abuse or maltreatment to the Michigan Centralized Intake (CI) of Child Abuse and Maltreatment, also know as the Child Abuse Hotline. The law also assigns civil and criminal liability to those professionals who do not comply with their mandated reporter abilities. Mandated reporters are required to report suspected child abuse or maltreatment – or cause a report to be made – when they are presented with reasonable cause to suspect abuse or maltreatment.
Who should attend?
The following is a list of persons identified by the State of Michigan as mandated reporters: members of clergy, regulated child care provider, physician, dentist, physician's assistant, medical examiner, nurse, audiologist, psychologist, therapist, counselor, social worker, social service technician, friend of the court, school
administrator, teacher, law enforcement officer and more. The training is also open to anyone interested in how to recognize and report child abuse and neglect.
