Thursday, June 22 - Importance of a Medical Exam in a Sex Assualt Investigation

from 11am - 1pm

Description: Why is the medical exam important?  Sometimes a child is more willing to disclose to a doctor in a medical setting. Any child or adolescent who discloses sexual abuse needs a full medical exam.  Regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred, it is important that child and adolescent victims are medically examined to ensure that they are healthy. Children who have been touched inappropriately often worry they are different from other children.  The exam reassures them they are “normal” and that their body is or will be “just like all the other kids.”  If there are signs of injury or infection, these will be treated and documented. Sometimes the medical professional may be able to collect evidence about abuse.

Presenter: Dr. Coral L. Steffey, MD, FAAP, Denver Health Child Protection Team

Location: Northglenn Police Department, 50 W Community Center Dr, Northglenn 80234

Ralston House Inclusion Committee

Ralston House is seeking members to join the Inclusion Committee.

This group meets quarterly to review National Children’s Alliance (NCA)

Standards. MDT members have a responsibility to identify possible issues

with the child and family they are working with to better understand their

unique needs. With a better understanding of a family’s  diverse background, MDT members are then equipped with knowledge regarding their perceptions of abuse, their level of acculturation, and religious and cultural beliefs. This information is necessary to effectively respond and to children and families that Ralston House serves. 


Email Jennifer to join:
