Every year in partnership with Cuesta Community College, Center for Family Strengthening holds a Child Abuse Prevention Academy for students, professionals, and community members.
Historically participants have:
- Learned how to report incidents of suspected child abuse,
- Understand what occurs after a report,
- Gained knowledge about the Child Welfare Services system and resources for families in the community.
Learning objectives have expanded to include:
- An understanding of trauma and resilience
- Expanded awareness of SLO County community-based resources
- Knowledge of family strengthening approaches and practices
