Course Description

This refresher workshop is for workers required to report suspicions of child abuse and neglect who have completed the full training course within the last three years. The full training course is available if you are completing the course for the first time or have not completed the training in the last three years

It will refresh you on how to recognise, report and respond to children or young people who may be at risk of harm, child abuse or neglect.

The ‘Creating safe environments for children and young people’ refresher workshop focuses on child protection in the context of ‘Through Their Eyes’ and has the safety and wellbeing of children at its core. It covers:

  • Introduction to child protection in context.
  • Values and attitudes: ‘Through our eyes’.
  • Risk and harm: South Australian legislation.
  • Risk and harm: Abuse-related trauma.
  • Sexual abuse and online grooming.
  • Through their eyes: Disclosure.
  • Safe organisations.
  • Reporting suspicion of risk and harm.

In South Australia, when child abuse and neglect are suspected, a wide range of people are required by law to notify the Child Abuse Report Line. This half day refresher training is designed for professionals or volunteers who are mandatory reporters.
