Human service providers, therapists and many other professionals are mandatory reporters. This presentation will provide an overview of mandatory reporting, and go into detail regarding concerns about child abuse and neglect, as well as the abuse, neglect, and exploitation of at-risk elders and adults. This workshop will also include information about emergency procedures and mandates that lead to breaking confidentiality to report individuals who express a serious threat to themselves, others, or target entities.

  • Participants will be able to define physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, caretaker neglect, and exploitation, and be able to identify signs of each.
