Social workers in settings where children are present may quickly become among the child’s “safe” adults to share a wide range of issues and concerns, including experiences the child is having that constitute abuse. Learn how to respond to the disclosure to minimize the stress to the child, including differentiating between hearing the child’s disclosure and beginning the necessary investigation. The investigation process will be discussed, as well as your role as an advocate for the child at each stage. The workshop will also provide information about the process of testifying and strategies for how to maximize your effectiveness as a witness and minimize the stress you may feel. Class size is limited to 45.
