Training NameChild Physical Abuse and Neglect Investigations: The Basics (Part 2 - Virtual)
Training Description

This two-part virtual training focuses on the basics of child physical abuse and neglect investigations with an emphasis on multidisciplinary coordination. Part I of the training will focus on understanding the prevalence of child abuse and neglect, recognizing red flags and risk factors, distinguishing between inflicted and accidental injuries, the emergency protective custody process, and interviewing. In the interviewing segment of the training, we will begin with a review of general techniques of interviewing and then broaden the discussion to include all the individuals that need to be interviewed for a comprehensive investigation and the questions that should be asked. Part II will focus on proper documentation and evidence collection and a discussion of applicable definitions of abuse and neglect and criminal laws. *This is the same content that is offered as an in-person training. It is being offered both virtually and in-person to suit the individual learning needs of attendees.


This training will be offered on a virtual platform. Links will be sent near the date of the training.
