Credits: None available.

Standard: $32.00
Members: $22.00

Description

Although counselors in 44 states are mandatory reporters of child maltreatment, they may lack an understanding of their legally designated role. This article presents the results of a systematic review of child maltreatment reporting laws in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The authors apply relevant legislation to real-life contexts for counselors.

Learning Objectives:

  • Examine the laws and subsequent responsibilities of counselors as mandated reporters in all states and the District of Columbia
  • Understand how state laws vary regarding acts that constitute abuse and neglect; types of reportable abuse; which professionals are labeled as mandatory reporters; and the penalties and liabilities for failure to report

I enjoyed this particular article because the authors were able to do a deep dive into the wide variations across states, which can be confusing and potentially problematic to a therapist's practice.

I think one of the questions for this exam is scored incorrectly: 5) Which of the following, in isolation, does not constitute neglect or abuse? The answer marked correct is "Exposure to domestic violence"; however, the article on p. 377 states that "Homelessness or poverty alone does not constitute neglect or abuse." I think I should get credit for this question.
