Mandated Reporting of Child Abuse as a Confidential Community-based Advocate
While confidentiality is part and parcel for community-based advocacy, what does that mean around mandated reporting? What about when working with adolescents? What about providing advocacy for children? Is there a difference between sexual assault and domestic violence?
What can seem cut and dry, can lead to question after question. Advocates usually have the best answers concerning safety and well-being based on the experience of survivors and their children.
Join us as we take a look at best practices around Mandated Reporting Policies and Procedures, and remind ourselves of the varying factors concerning ages, and kinds of services and engagement provided.
Bring your questions and examples. Violence Free Colorado will bring sample policies, connections to best-practice and current standings on the issues involved. Register Now!
Each month of 2015, you are invited to join Violence Free Colorado staff and experts from advocacy organizations around the state for a Brown Bag conversation!
We hope you’ll join us!
