More than half of child maltreatment suspicions do not get reported to child protective services. Contributing to the quandaries professional reporters face when making the decision to report is concern for infringing on family autonomy. These concerns largely relate to the ethical conflict between protecting children and respecting parental rights. This session will explore the history and ethical application of parental, child and family rights schemas in an effort to help prepare professional reporters of suspected child maltreatment with the tools to report, when necessary, and respect family autonomy whenever possible.
