Although counselors in 44 states are mandatory reporters of child maltreatment, they may lack an understanding of their legally designated role.

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
