Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month Webinar
Cost: FREE
April is recognized nationally as Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month. Each year, KCSL coordinates a statewide campaign promoting child abuse prevention programs and events. In 2019, events were held in 29 communities across Kansas. These events included pinwheel plantings and proclamation signings at the State Capitol, child care centers and other public events bringing together local government and agencies united in promoting child abuse prevention strategies. KCSL is here to provide support throughout April. Join us for a free webinar about CAP Month--the materials available, the toolkit, pinwheel planting ideas and collaborative efforts. Please note this is not a webinar about mandated reporting or recognizing child abuse signs/symptoms. This webinar will focus on the April child abuse prevention campaign designed to raise awareness of prevention programs at the state and local levels. REGISTER HERE

Preventing Infant Abuse with the Period of PURPLE Crying®
Cost: FREE
The Period of PURPLE Crying® is the phrase used to describe the time in a baby's life when they cry more than any other time. Infants who cry a lot or are awake and fussy at night are a source of concern for many parents. Because of the normal increase in crying that occurs in the first months of a baby's life, parents and caregivers usually have questions. Crying is the most frequently reported trigger for why a parent or caregiver would shake a baby. Early prevention education is the key to decreasing the incidence of shaken baby syndrome and infant abuse. The Period of PURPLE Crying® is an evidence-based shaken baby syndrome primary prevention program, created by the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome. Join us to learn about the Kansas strategy, how PURPLE is being implemented in hospitals and agencies across the state, how the program was selected and the research behind it. REGISTER HERE

Child Abuse and Neglect Recognition and Reporting
Cost: FREE
Kansas law states that most professionals who work with children including medical professionals, social workers, nurses, educators and others are mandated reporters. This means that they are required by law to report suspicion of child abuse or neglect. Participants of this webinar will be able to define the various types of abuse and neglect, identify signs and symptoms of each type and address areas of risk and protective factors. In addition, participants will learn the appropriate responses to suspected abuse or neglect, discuss what to do in the event of child disclosure and understand Kansas mandated reporter laws.
