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. In the meantime, the statistics on child abuse continue to be alarming in USA and in the world. An estimated one in four U.S. children experience abuse or neglect. And we still have underreporting. Understanding what child abuse is and how/when to report considering the law and ethics of your state as well as the main recommendations by experts on the field can help us prevent it. Clinicians can also provide better treatment to the children and families in the community.

This workshop will provide introductory ethical and legal considerations around child abuse when doing a report. We will also focus on providing case samples of difficult reporting situations, consultation and supervision when dealing with difficult cases.
