Child Abuse Case Identification and Reporting: A Report from a Symposium on Professional Perspectives in the Decision-making Process.
Klaus, Susan L.
Reported are issues considered at a professional symposium on child abuse case identification and reporting. The general information needs, considerations, and decision-making processes that seem to be held in common across professional disciplines are identified. The ways in which a particular professional's background, training, and work setting can affect the identification process and influence the decision to report are discussed. Finally, symposium discussions comparing and contrasting the various professional perspectives are summarized. Appended are a list of symposium participants and a selected bibliography. (SBH)
