Annotation: GENERAL ISSUES IN REPORTING CASES OF CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT AS WELL AS THE PROCEDURES FOR REPORTING ABUSE ARE DISCUSSED IN THESE TAPED CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS.
Abstract: A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MARYLAND STATE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT OUTLINED THE BASIC ISSUES IN REPORTING CASES OF CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT. ALTHOUGH REPORTING DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A SIMPLE END TO THE CASES OF ABUSE, IT IS THE FIRST STEP IN AN INVESTIGATION OF A CHILD'S FAMILY SITUATION. VARIOUS STEPS AND PROCEDURES SCHOOL PERSONNEL SHOULD TAKE -- DEPENDING ON THE POLICIES OF THEIR STATE AND SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCIES -- WHEN CHILD ABUSE OR NEGLECT IS SUSPECTED ARE REVIEWED. A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE FAMILY CENTER IN ADAMS COUNTY, COLO., REVIEWED THE STEPS AND PROCEDURES USED BY THE CENTER FOR REPORTING CASES OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT ALONG WITH HOW THE FAMILY CENTER WORKED WITH THE SCHOOLS IN ESTABLISHING REPORTING PROCEDURES IN SIX SCHOOL DISTRICTS, THE ASSESSMENTS MADE OF ABUSE-RELATED PROBLEMS AND THE INSERVICE TRAINING PROVIDED TO ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS, AND SUPPORT PERSONNEL. THE CENTER FORMULATED GUIDELINES FOR REPORTING ABUSE BECAUSE IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT WHILE TEACHERS KNEW OF CASES OF ABUSE, THEY FAILED TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE PROPER AUTHORITIES. (BAC)
