By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

> Define maltreatment and list the four types of maltreatment
> Recognise indicators of each type of maltreatment
> Explain the impact of maltreatment and family violence on children and young people
> Identify ways to support a child or young person who has experienced maltreatment or family violence

This workshop is a partnership between Fostering Kids NZ and Child Youth and Family.

These workshops are free and open primarily to anyone in New Zealand who is caring for someone else’s child not in the care of their birth parents. This includes agency caregivers, respite carers, and family/whānau caregivers who care for children unable to live with their birth parents. Limited places are also open to caregiver social workers and Non-Government Organisation (NGO) representatives that support carers
