             After attending this workshop regarding identifying and reporting child abuse and maltreatment, I am now more educated on making the right move if I ever have to experience this first hand in the workplace.  I will be able to effectively report child abuse or maltreatment/neglect to the New York State Central Registrar of Child Abuse and Maltreatment, also known as the Child Abuse Hot-line. I will also be able to evaluate situations to determine weather there is reasonable cause to suspect child abuse and also identify the physical and behavioral indicators commonly associated with maltreatment and abuse.

After attending this workshop involving how to prevent violence in schools I am now more well educated on acting upon violence in the school setting. Violence can happen anytime, anywhere. An effective and well prepared instructor with the correct knowledge to handle a situation will have an end result of being successful in stopping the violence safely. A sound violence prevention and response plan reflects the common and unique needs of educators, students, families, and the greater community.
