Staff members conduct workshops on how to effectively file a 51A report of child abuse and neglect with the Department of Social Services. Emphasis is made on recognizing potential signs and symptoms of abuse. Attendees learn how to interact with a child who makes a disclosure and properly document the information. Child abuse laws are discussed. The new procedures addressing First Complaint witness are also addressed.
