There have been significant changes to the Child Protective Services Law that became effective in December 2014. Although there are home study and in-person courses to educate licensed professionals regarding the new regulations, many questions remain. This workshop will not meet the continuing education requirement in Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting for licensure renewal. However, it will meet the requirement for ethics credits.
