Florida USA Response Team Training

May 10-13, 2020

General Information

How does your organisation respond when there is a concern that a child has been harmed? In the International context, there is often no clear place to turn for objective help. There can be so many competing interests and diverse opinions involved. Very often the reaction can be one of confusion, uncertainty, or even panic. 

This Response Team Training (RTT) provides three days of intensive modular training designed to equip your organisation with the knowledge and skills to respond to a report of harm to a child. We will look at the principles of Child Safety and Misconduct Assessments and give you a toolbox to help you make decisions and create safety plans. Using a Process Map, you will navigate your way through different ‘real life’ scenarios that will bring principle-based theory to life.  Table-based discussions and group work enhance shared learning and provide excellent networking opportunities.       

Who is this training for?
This course is not a general child safety prevention training, although it will help you to identify where gaps may be in your own context. This course is ideally for personnel in your organisation or school who are child safety team members responsible for or involved in dealing with an incident of harm (or risk of harm) to a child. Attendees might also include field leaders or member care providers who would benefit from understanding the Response Process.  

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. 

2020 CSPN ANNUAL CONFERENCE:  Following the RTT, we invite you to stay and participate in the CSPN Annual Conference, beginning the evening of May 13 and running through Saturday, May 16, 2020. The registration for this event is completely separate from the RTT training; for more information or to register for the conference, please go to the Annual Conference page here.

RTT Dates and Times
The RTT will be preceded by a two-hour Orientation session that gives an overview of general Child Safety in order to provide a shared foundation for learning. Please plan to attend every RTT session over all four days of the training.

Orientation runs from 4:00-6:00pm on Sunday, May 10. Plan to arrive at the venue by 3:30pm on Sunday to check in with the facilitators and receive your packet of materials.

A certificate of Continuing Education Credits will be provided at completion of the course.
