Child abuse reporting is a hard process and continues to be a challenge for clinicians, and many feel confused, guilty, or unsure on when to report. Cultural norms play a significant role in shaping the probability of adult discovery or child disclosure of sexual abuse. Additionally, these norms influence whether families of abused children will report the abuse to authorities.

This workshop will provide into how ethnic and religious cultures impact the disclosure and reporting of child abuse, both domestically in the United States and globally. It offers guidelines for conducting culturally sensitive interviews with abused children to enhance disclosure in formal settings across diverse cultural backgrounds.
