All teachers and school employees in Oregon are required to work through online training focused on helping them identify abuse in its many forms. 

 

The website states concerns clearly, and in terms that apply no matter where you live: “While our formal focus is on children’s education, our commitment is to their safety, which includes their physical, emotional, and mental health. Child abuse and neglect remain critical issues . . .”  The site reminds the participant that abuse isn't restricted to sexual abuse, and that "signs" aren't posted in four-inch letters for all to see. But the signs are there.

 

One of the most important aspects of the training is helping people understand what NOT to do. As the quizzes and examples in the training underscore, there are appropriate and inappropriate ways of handling suspected abuse, and the "community" should know the difference. Recognizing signs of abuse, in any form, and knowing what to do about whether and how to report it are all important parts of this training that takes the trainee through examples and short quizzes to test their comprehension of what has been presented.  As recently quoted, "Though we don't want to over-react, consider the potential of more damage/abuse occurring if we 'under-react.’”

 

The format is directed at teachers and school employees, so people taking the training will need to adapt the terms to the trainee's own life and involvement with children, as a family member, as a volunteer, as a community member, as a neighbor.  

 

"If any ONE adult takes this training and can intercede for ONE child, it will make all the difference in the world for THAT child."
