Share this:

LACASA’s Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Council will host a two-part workshop on Friday, Oct. 19, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The day-long program will feature Mandated Reporter training in the morning and a Stewards of Children workshop in the afternoon. Both sessions will be held at LESA, 1425 W. Grand River Ave., Howell.

The Mandated Reporter training session will focus on recognizing the signs and symptoms of abuse and neglect; knowing what, when and how to report; and the legal requirements for mandated reporters.

Participants also will learn about protections for reporters, consequences for failure to report, as well as the policies and procedures implemented by Children’s Protective Services.

The afternoon Stewards of Children workshop will teach adults seven steps to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Space is limited for both sessions and pre-registration is required. Attendees can choose to participate in either the morning or afternoon session, or they may register for the full-day program.

A flat registration fee of $20 will cover materials, refreshments and lunch. SB-CEUs will be available for an additional $20 fee paid on the day of the program.

The deadline to register is October 12. For additional information, visit www.lacasacenter.org or contact Deanna Norris, CAP Council director, at (517) 548-1350.
