Family Planning Program Orientation

Mandatory Child Abuse Reporting at New York State Family Planning Program-Funded Settings | Customizable Training Slides

The purpose of this training is to provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to understand what is reportable as child abuse and neglect in New York State and how to respond to cases of child abuse and neglect, either as an identified mandated reporter or other staff at our New York State Family Planning Program agency.

New York State Family Planning Program Providers must complete annual training on identification and reporting of child abuse. This training can be used to: 

  • Provide a refresher for mandated reporters who have previously completed training about child abuse reporting
  • Ensure staff working in family planning settings who are not mandated reporters understand the process of reporting

The training is designed to be customized by staff working in Family Planning Program settings. You can tailor the training to include your agency name and agency-specific policies regarding mandatory child abuse reporting. 

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify risk factors and possible indicators of child abuse and neglect
  • Explain the mandatory child abuse reporting process in New York State including how to make a report to the New York Statewide Central Register
  • Describe at least two trauma-informed best practices that support family planning clients
