Mandated Reporter/Child Abuse and Neglect Recognition and Reporting
Kansas Law states that most professionals who work with children are “mandated reporters,” meaning they are required by law to report suspicion of child abuse or neglect. Kansas Children’s Service League has developed several training options to help mandated reporters, and others interested in learning more about this topic, understand signs of child abuse and neglect and the process for making a report.

The objectives for Mandated Reporter training include:
  • To understand the risk and protective factors related to child abuse and neglect
  • To educate professionals on the definitions and signs of abuse and neglect
  • To identify the signs of abusive head trauma and strategies to prevent it
  • To understand the role of mandated reporter and the process for making reports
KCSL staff across the state of Kansas are available to do presentations on Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting for church groups, child care workers, educators, foster parents, and other groups of mandated reporters. Cost is $75 per hour (usually a one to two hour presentation). Email for more information.

The Period of PURPLE Crying
KCSL is offering training opportunities for the Period of PURPLE Crying®. The Period of PURPLE Crying is being implemented in hospitals and agencies across the state as a way to educate parents, caregivers, and society on the normalcy of infant crying and the dangers of shaking an infant. This training provides a brief background of Kansas’ involvement with the program, as well as information about how the program was developed, the research it is based on, and how participants can utilize this information when working with families and infants.
  • Participants will receive general information about Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma, infant crying, and the connection between these two topics.
  • Participants will be able to identify frustrating properties of infant crying through the acronym PURPLE.
  • Participants will be able to describe at least two ways in which they can use the Period of PURPLE Crying information.
Costs for these trainings are provided by a grant. A $25 donation can be made which will go directly back to providing PURPLE services. Contact information:
