Counselors are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse, yet many face challenges that hinder the process, such as uncertainty about the reporting process, fear of rupturing the therapeutic alliance, and distrust of child protective services. The presenters will share results of their mixed method study on reporting behaviors of counselors and provide recommendations for counselors, supervisors, and counselor educators on issues of child abuse training and reporting.
