About the Course

You’re in a situation with a child, a family or an adult that causes you to pause and wonder what you need to do to help protect everyone involved. As we all know, therapists are mandated reporters. What we don’t always know is: What exactly does it mean to be a mandated reporter? What sorts of behaviors or reports do we need to respond to? What will a call do to our alliance with our client(s)? Can we NOT call if we think doing so is in the best interest of our client? What might happen to our clients and to us if we do NOT call? What exactly are our legal and ethical responsibilities? Clinically and relationally, making a report can be a real challenge! We worry about what reporting means for our clients and for us. Course objectives include:

  • Identify 3 situations in which they must report to child protective services.

  • Discuss the clinical, legal, and ethical impacts of reporting and not reporting.

  • Explain what can be expected when making a call to child protective services.
