The Child Abuse Action Network is a multidisciplinary task force comprised of individuals from selected disciplines involved in handling child abuse and neglect cases. We publish information on child abuse and neglect, provide training, develop necessary resources, and create awareness. Our mission is to enhance the knowledge and skills of professionals who intervene in child abuse and neglect.
The Child Abuse Action Network works in conjunction with the Citizen Review Panel and the Child Death and Serious Injury Review Panel in order to evaluate and strengthen Maine's child protective services system, with the goals of recognizing child abuse or neglect cases at the first warning signs and handling such cases with minimal additional trauma to the child victim(s).
