You Report? Everyone Reports? Mandated Reporting Obligations When a Survivor Has a Disability

The primary public policy response to the victimization of people with disabilities was the creation of mandatory reporting requirements, whereby service providers are sometimes required by the law in their state to report abuse or neglect to a state agency or oversight organization. These requirements are different in every state and may have an impact on how domestic/sexual violence and disability providers interact with the people that they serve. This webinar will provide an overview of mandatory reporting in the context of sexual and domestic violence and some of the unique dynamics that arise when a survivor of sexual or domestic violence has a disability. Strategies for maintaining confidentiality while complying with mandatory reporting requirements will be addressed.
