Who: SBCAMFT members and Non-SBCAMFT members  (Join now!)

Where: Zoom

When: April 17, 2024 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Description: Although mandated child abuse reporting is one of the most common legal issues therapists encounter in practice, it can be one of the trickiest to navigate. This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of the mandated reporting procedures outlined in California’s Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA), including the different types of reportable child abuse, the types of California agencies that receive mandated child abuse reports, and how much time mandated reporters have to make these reports.

The workshop will also address some of the most complex reporting issues therapists face, including: distinguishing between lawful vs. unlawful corporal punishment, when / whether to report consensual sexual activity with and between minors, and how CANRA’s mandated reporting rules apply to sexting between minors.

Cost: $60 for SBCAMFT members, $65 for non-members
