The Alabama Department of Human Resources has launched a free, online Mandated Child Abuse/Neglect Reporter Training program developed to assist Mandatory Reporters in recognizing the early signs of child abuse and neglect. The training was developed to provide information on how, when, and where to make a report of child abuse and neglect. Pursuant to Section 26-14-3 of The Code of Alabama, mental health professionals, among others, are required to report suspected child abuse and neglect to the proper authorities.
Although this training does not count toward annual continuing education requirements, your knowledge in this area when serving the children and families of Alabama, and abroad, is invaluable and the Board encourages you to complete this important training.
