Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v24 n10 p1317-28 Oct 2000
Mail surveys were completed by 258 mental health professions who had reported a case of suspected child abuse and maltreatment during 1993 in New York. About 40 percent did not inform the client about the limits of confidentiality until reportable material came up. Most clinicians reported that informing clients about such limits did not deter treatment. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
