Group offers training to detect child abuse
Leavenworth County Child Abuse Prevention Council (LCAPC) will conduct free training for mandated reporters of suspected child abuse/neglect in two sessions on Thursday, Jan. 10.
The sessions will take place at University of St. Mary in Mabee Auditorium, and attendees can choose between a 4-6 p.m. session and a 7-9 p.m. session.
Mandated reporters include anyone licensed in the healing arts, therapists, teachers/administrators/other school employees, KDHE child care licensees, law enforcement, EMS and firefighters, juvenile corrections personnel, court appointed case managers and mediators.
Even if not mandated by to report, LCAPC suggests the training for anyone who works or volunteers with children during their daily business.
Anyone in Leavenworth County is encouraged to attend the training to learn to recognize signs of abuse/neglect and how to get help for those children.
