Ethical Challenges in Reporting Across the Lifespan: Child Abuse,Intimate Partner Violence, and Elder Abuse
3.0 ETHICS CREDIT HOURS
Mental and Behavioral Health Professionals throughout the United States are mandated reporters of suspected child maltreatment, and are often required to report concerns for intimate partner violence and/or elder abuse, as well. These legal requirements to report are often confusing to navigate, especially in relation to our other professional and ethical responsibilities. This course is intended for mental and behavioral health 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 across the lifespan in light of our legal obligations. Specifically, we will explore how our reporting obligations differ based on the social problem we are reporting about. Where do these legal obligations to report come from? And are they ethically appropriate?
