Child abuse prevention workshops
The New York State Education Department requires all teachers who are seeking initial or permanent state certification to complete two hours of training regarding the identification and reporting of suspected child abuse and treatment. The United Federation of Teachers is a provider approved by the New York State Education Department.
Upcoming workshops and registration information will be posted when available.
The objective of this training is to provide every New York State mandated reporter with the knowledge and skills to be able to:
- Effectively report child abuse or maltreatment/neglect to the NYS Child Abuse and Maltreatment Register
- Evaluate situations to determine whether there is reasonable cause to suspect child abuse or maltreatment
- Identify the physical and behavioral indicators commonly associated with child abuse
Online registration is available to both UFT members and non-members. The UFT offers this workshop to its members for a $25 fee; non-members must pay $50. Payment can be made via credit card upon registration. All fees are non-refundable.
