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.

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 Mandated Reporter Training
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.

Connections Matter in Early Childhood
Where:  Online via Zoom
Details:  Every day connections are more important than we ever believed. Science tells us that relationships have the power to shape our brains. Relationships help us learn better, work better, parent better. When we experience tough times, relationships help us heal. With each connection, we develop a healthier, stronger community. Connections Matter is a training designed to engage community members in building caring connections to improve resiliency, prevent childhood trauma, and understand how our interactions with others can support those who have experienced trauma. Connections Matter explores how the connections we make in life profoundly impact our brain’s ability to grow and our own abilities to cope and thrive. This is done through a training curriculum that educates participants on adverse childhood experiences, trauma, brain development and resilience. Connections Matter ultimately strives to promote the building of more resilient, compassionate, and trauma-informed communities – thus allowing all children and individuals to succeed. This training is pre-approved for 4.0 KDHE 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.
