Navigating Ethical Considerations in Reporting Suspected Child Abuse

Due to the global health situation, Washington University is enacting a distance learning policy impacting all Professional Development offerings until at least Memorial Day (late May). We are currently working with individual instructors to determine whether each offering will be postponed or offered as scheduled in an online format. Most webpages are now updated to reflect this information. Thank you for your patience in these uniquely dynamic times.

Reasonable suspicion serves as the standard threshold for when to report suspected child abuse; however, there is little guidance on how to interpret the term. This workshop will review the ethical and legal requirements pertaining to mandatory reporting, recognizing abuse, and best practice.

The workshop will foster better understanding of ethical practice and how to recognize and address ethical challenges. Discussion will center on navigating gray areas and dilemmas while adhering to ethical and legal guidelines.

General Admission: $60**

Class size is limited to 75.

This class meets the licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in ethics.

**Discounts on workshop admission are offered to the Brown School’s students, alumni, and field instructors.
