Making the Tough Call: Legal & Ethical Issues Related to the Decision to Report Suspected Child Maltreatment
Many professionals throughout the United States have mandated reporters of suspected child maltreatment. However, the legal requirement to report is often confusing to navigate in relation to our other professional and ethical responsibilities. This workshop provides a profession-based context to the role of the mandated reporter. Mandated reporters will learn a framework to guide the decision to make this “tough call” using research findings and practical advice based on real case examples.
