About the Course:
Health Professionals throughout the United States are mandated reporters of suspected child maltreatment. However, our legal requirement to report is often confusing to navigate in relation to our other professional and ethical responsibilities. This workshop is intended for health professionals who already have a basic understanding of their obligations as mandated reporters, and want to explore areas that are complicated by our professional relationships with clients in light of our legal obligations. Specifically, we will explore informed consent practices with different client populations, supporting practice with clients after making a report, and how to work with child protective services, especially in light of concerns for racial and social justice in the child welfare system.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, Advanced Ethical Issues for Mandated Reporters of Child Maltreatment created by Kathryn Krase, Ph.D., J.D., M.S.W. in 2021
