Ethics of being a Mandated Reporter:
When Personal and Professional Ethics Collide

 

October 25, 2021

10:00 am - 4:45 pm EST (6 CE Credits)

Live Webinar

 6 CE Credits, $99.99

 

 THIS WEBINAR WILL NOT BE RECORDED

Parents, Professionals, Advocates, Relatives, and Neighbors represent our community. We embrace and protect our children, yet when does community intervention cease to be enough, when does the duty to protect require the intervention of the government? Government is a public trust, yet what happens when you don’t trust the government will intervene in the most ethical wholistic way? What is my obligation as a member of society?

 

This interactive training will help people confront their bias and determine their obligation to the child regardless of personal beliefs. This training will help mandated reporters address their own internal conflict so that they might act to protect the child while remaining part of the safety plan for the child in accordance with their local law and municipal regulations (using examples from DC/ MD/ VA), providing guidance on national standards.

This class can be used to fulfill the NEW Washington DC criteria for topics identified as “Key Public Health Priorities”.
