Turkey Response Team Training

November 13-16, 2019


General Information

How does your organization 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 organization 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 organization 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.

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.
Orientation will be taking place on Wednesday, November 13 , from 4:00 to 6:00pm. The RTT will follow running Thursday, November 14 through Saturday, November 16 at 5:00pm. Please plan to attend every RTT session over all three days of the training.

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