General Information

This year’s Asia Response Team Training will be taking place at the Christian Academy Japan in the city of Higashikurume, Tokyo, Japan. There will be an orientation taking place on Monday, February 25th from 4 to 6 pm. This will be followed by the Response Team Training (RTT) taking place Tuesday, February 26th through Thursday, February 28th from 8 am to 5 pm. Please note that the orientation is an important part of this conference. Please plan to attend it.

This Response Team Training (RTT) provides three days of intensive modular training on how to respond to child safety reports. This course is designed to specifically equip response team members, with the knowledge and skills to respond to a report of harm to a child within your organization. This training is a specialized course focusing on response team protocols for organizations who have an established Child Safety program and are able to respond to any reports of concern. This training is not a general Child Safety Training program, although it will give your organization an overview of what is ultimately needed. Attendees should be members of your organization who will be part of your response team, either as a team member, management/leadership of a response or member care staff who will support those directly involve.

The Response Team Training is reserved for CSPN Member organizations. Mission agencies and international schools are encouraged to send 2-4 people to the same RTT event. CSPN Members must be approved by their organization’s gatekeeper to attend. Please plan to attend every RTT session over all three days of the training.

If your organization would like to join CSPN, please see our membership tab.



RTT Information

Response Team Training (RTT) is geared for Missions Organizations and International Christian Schools who: have been approved as members of the Child Safety & Protection Network, have completed or are in the process of drafting their child safety policies, and wish to train a team in the area of organizational response to child abuse reports regarding staff or children within their organization.

Agencies are asked to send a minimum of 2 team members (unless others from the organization have already attended one of the trainings) who have been specifically tasked with conducting internal inquiries for their organization.

Prior to attendance at the Response Team Training, the agency gatekeepers are asked to commit to the following:

  • identify response team members who fit the criteria (sample listed in the Elements of Child Safety).
  • review together your agency response policies and procedures so that the response team training will build well on them.
  • bring your agency's child safety policies and procedures with you to the training (regardless of where in the process they may be, even if they are in draft form).

If your agency fits this criteria, we would like to invite you to the Child Safety Response Team Training - February 25-28, 2019.

Travel Information

Visa Information
Each conference participant is responsible to determine whether or not you require a visa to enter Japan.  If you need an invitation letter you may request one by emailing the CSPN Administrative Assistant at adminassist@childsafetyprotectionnetwork.org.

Transport from Airport to Hotel
We recommend flying into the Haneda airport which is closer to the Christian Academy Japan (About 2 plus hours by car and train). However, you can also fly into the Narita airport which is about 3 hours away.

Tokyo has a highly effective transportation system. There are limousine buses as well as subways.

From Narita and Haneda international airport, there is a limousine bus departing to Tokorozawa station which is the final stop (about every 25-30 minutes from Haneda and less frequently from Narita). From there take Seibu Ikemukuro line to Higashi Kurume station. Hotel is less than 5 minutes’ walk to the station.

There are also seral train routes to get to the Higashi Kurume station (Seibu Ikemukuro line). This requires 2-3 transfers which can be confusing to the first-time visitors to Japan. This is the faster and more affordable option if you like to try.
