Making the Tough Call: Resource for Professional Reporters of Suspected Child Maltreatment Special Edition for Mental and Behavioral Health Professionals

Mental and behavioral health professionals throughout the United States are mandated reporters of suspected child maltreatment. However, the legal requirement to report is often confusing to navigate in relation to other professional and ethical responsibilities. This book provides profession-based context to the role of mandated reporter. Readers will learn a framework to guide the decision to make this “tough call” using research findings and practical advice based on real case examples.

Learning Objectives
1) Participants will define child physical abuse.
2) Participants will define child sexual abuse.
3) Participants will define child emotional abuse.
4) Participants will define child neglect.
5) Participants will understand considerations for determining when making a report to child protective services is required by law.
6) Participants will identify the ethical/ moral and legal conundrums faced when making the decision to report.
7) Participants will apply a framework to guide the process for deciding whether to make a report.
