Annual Conference: This multi-day event offers a variety of child safety workshops covering BPS, advanced ITT training, and other professional development opportunities to representatives from CSPN member agencies (or those planning to apply). Annual conferences are now held in the USA and Asia, and we are working toward them being held in Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Call for Topics/Presenters: Please contact us with your ideas.  

Orientation to CSPN: This half day event offers the foundational overview to the Child Safety and Protection Network. It is a prerequisite for every individual attending CSPN events, and is available immediately preceding them, or is offered as part of a one-day conference which also includes an overview of CSPN Best Practice Standards (BPS).


ITT (Investigative Team Training): This 3 day event offers intensive training for how to respond to child abuse reports as laid out in the CSPN Best Practice Standards (BPS). It is recommended an agency sends 2-4 representatives to the same ITT event. Prerequisites: The agency must be a CSPN member at the Associate or a Full level, and the representatives it sends must attend an Orientation to CSPN (see above) and commit to attending every ITT session.
