KCSL offers several online trainings for mandated reporters, which include most professionals who work with children. In Kansas, mandated reporters are required by law to report suspicion of child abuse or neglect. KCSL’s trainings help participants understand signs of child abuse and neglect and the process for making a report.

ACEs and Resilience

Adverse Childhood Experiences
Where:  Online via Zoom
Details:  Children who grow up in safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments that foster hope and resilience are better prepared for lifelong health and well-being. The 1998 landmark Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study demonstrated that many adults recall experiences - including abuse, neglect, substance abuse, and areas of household dysfunction - that led to lifelong poor physical and emotional health. While ACEs are important, an exclusive focus on adverse experiences risks labeling children and their families, and it neglects to turn attention toward the possibility for flourishing even in the face of adversity (Sege, R). Participants of this training will learn about the ACEs research including the impact on social connections, school readiness and the likelihood of developing negative health behaviors, learn about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention framework being implemented to prevent ACEs called Essentials for Childhood: Safe, Stable, and Nurturing Relationships and Environments; and brainstorm concrete ways to cultivate relationships and environments that create a positive impact for children and families in our communities. This training is approved by KDHE for 1.0 child care licensing hours.

Child Abuse and Neglect Recognition and Reporting
Where:  Online via Zoom
Details:  Kansas law states that most professionals who work with children, including medical professionals, social workers, nurses, educators and more, are mandated reporters. This means that they are required by law to report suspicion of child abuse or neglect. Participants of this training 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. This training is approved by KDHE for 1.0 child care licensing hours.

Preventing Infant Abuse with the Period of PURPLE Crying
Where:  Online via Zoom
Details:  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. Come 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. This training is geared toward those professionals who are working with families with new babies, whether through child care, home visitation programs, health departments, clinics, etc. This training is approved by KDHE for 1.0 child care licensing hours.

The Ethical Imperative of Self-Care and Professional Wellness
Where:  Online via Zoom
Details:  Too often, the last person that helping professionals nurture and protect is themselves. This neglect undermines healthy practice and can harm our clients, our organizations, our families, and ourselves. We will tackle the costs of self-neglect, from stress and eroding health to compassion fatigue and job burnout, and engage in some strong, meaningful ways in which professionals can protect themselves and each other. Sponsored by the Child Advocacy Center of Sedgwick County, and Presented by Amy Kalb, DSW, LMSW & Shaunna Millar, LMSW. Certificates of attendance will be provided.

    April 7, 2021 from 1:00pm - 4:00pm

What to Expect When You Are Expecting to Adopt
Where:  Virtual Zoom Training
Details:  Welcoming a child who experienced early complex developmental trauma into your home takes preparation. All future parents make room in their heart, home and calendar for a new baby. But, adoptive parents also need to gather the tools, supplies and skills to heal the broken heart of a child; a child who has not had their emotional and physical needs met. This workshop will introduce the framework and skills needed to begin healing the disrupted attachment of adoptive children. During this workshop you will learn about the “Attachment Cycle"; what attachment issues look like in the behaviors of children from trauma; and how to respond to your child’s attachment needs. For the official flyer, to register or for more information, please contact Clairissa at cmaddy@kcsl.org.
