Community Education Session: Keeping Kids Safe

Child abuse is a serious, pervasive and complex issue experienced by approximately 1/3 of Canadians. All adults who work with children and youth have an obligation to report suspected abuse. Talking with a child or youth about suspected abuse or making a report is often very stressful. Knowing what signs to look for, how to respond and what to expect when you report can help make this difficult situation more manageable. 

This session is designed to increase the capacity of adults who work with children and youth to:  

  • Recognize behavioral and physical signs of potential child abuse.
  • Respond to children and youth who disclose or give subtle verbal clues.
  • Confidently report suspected child abuse. 

This session is presented by the Community Education Service of the Child & Adolescent, Mental Health & Psychiatry Program (CAAMHPP) of AHS in partnership with Calgary Police Service and the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre. 

This FREE program will be presented via videoconference in the Meeting Room of the library.   No registration is required.
