Event description

Description

Daily, we are responsible for keeping the children in our programs safe from harm. We want to send them home better than when they arrived. Unfortunately, peer-to-peer abuse and adult-to-child abuse happens under our watch. We must close the gap between protocols and practices to ensure their safety.

Preventing child abuse can be done with the right layers of protection in place. Your organizations need policies and practices for screening, training, supervision, and reporting, both internally and externally, to greatly reduce exposures. We will discuss a variety of solutions within these layers as well as learnings from recent abuse cases within youth serving organizations. We will further touch on recent Arizona laws with respect to an organization’s audit of its policies and procedures for compliance with best practices, and what materials are protected from discovery during litigation to encourage organizations to be proactive in keeping our youth safe.
