Ethical & Legal Issues in School Counseling. Chapter 4: The School Counselor and Child Abuse.
Camblin, Lanthan D., Jr.; And Others
This document contains chapter 4 (7 articles) of a collection of 35 articles primarily from American Association for Counseling and Development (AACD) publications on the most important legal and ethical topics about which all school counselors need to be informed. "School Counselors and the Reporting of Child Abuse: A Survey of State Laws and Practices" (Lanthan D. Camblin, Jr. and H. Thompson Prout) discusses the legal and ethical issues surrounding school counselors' reports of suspected child abuse. "Legal Issues in Child Abuse: Questions and Answers for Counselors" (David N. Sandberg, Susan K. Crabbs, and Michael A. Crabbs) addresses specific legal questions that school counselors have asked regarding the reporting of suspected child abuse. "Child Abuse Hysteria and the Elementary School Counselor" (Lawrence D. Spiegel) provides the perspective of a parent who has been accused of child abuse. In responding to Spiegel's article, "Overstating the Issue: A Reaction to Spiegel" (Richard D. Krugman) delineates possible reasons for unfounded reports and questions the data as presented. "Counselors Need To Be Knowledgeable and Sensitive: A Reaction to Spiegel" (Patricia A. Ferris) reasserts the need for a balanced perspective and "Shared Responsibility for Reporting Child Abuse Cases: A Reaction to Spiegel" (Janet Howell-Nigrelli) suggests a team approach to issues of child abuse reporting and prevention. "Recent Research on Child Abuse: A Brief Review" (Edwin R. Gerler, Jr.) concisely summarizes recent research findings pertaining to child abuse. (NB)
