Webinar Description

For over 50 years, professionals have been required by law to report suspicions of child abuse
and neglect as “mandated reporters”. This workshop explores the role of mandated reporting by
applying foundational ethical principles through the lens of racial & social justice. An
exploration of the original intent of mandated reporter laws will be juxtaposed with the evolution
of the legal responsibility, and resulting disproportionalities in the current system. As society
grapples with the role that certain systems, including the child welfare system, have played in
poor outcomes for children of color, it is vital that we explore the role that individual reporters
play in this process. This workshop will provide a framework for professionals to place their role
in context, with the goal of furthering racial and social justice for all children and families.
