Staff members conduct workshops on how to effectively file a 51A report of child abuse and neglect with the Department of Children and Families. 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.
