Mandatory Reporters

Mandatory reporters play a key role in ensuring the safety of vulnerable children and the Alliance has created an eLearning specifically for this group.

These professionals who interact often with children are obligated to report concerns about abuse or neglect, and this eLearning will guide you through the process of identifying and documenting those concerns.

“Mandatory Reporter Roles and Responsibilities” breaks the process down into three parts:
1 - Recognize
2 - Record
3 - Report

Through the training, you will understand what indicators of abuse to look for; how to appropriately record and what information to have; and what happens when a report is filed.

You will consider the impact of biases on reporting possible child abuse and neglect, and learn about the problem of racial disproportionality in our state’s child welfare system. The training also covers the federal requirement that Indian heritage and affiliation with federally recognized tribes must be identified.
