JOELTON, Tenn. (AP) -- Victim advocates are holding a free training program to teach the public and child care providers how to identify signs of child abuse.
You Have the Power, a nonprofit agency founded by former first lady Andrea Conte, is holding the training on Tuesday at the Joelton Baptist Church in Joelton. The program is funded under an agreement with the state of Tennessee, Office of Criminal Justice.
The program is titled "Innocence Shattered: The Devastating Legacy of Educator Sexual Misconduct," and will teach how to identify signs of inappropriate educator behavior, correctly report suspected abuse and learn about available resources and prevention.
Child care providers can receive a certificate of attendance that can be used to meet training requirements.
