Mandated Reporter Training for Therapists

Please join us for our CEU Webinar Series

Friday, October 15, 2021, from 9:30-11:00 AM 

Presented by Dr. Margo Jacquot, PsyD., Founder & Owner of The Juniper Center


The cost is $15, you will earn 1.5 CEUs, and counts towards fulfilling the mandated reporter requirement.


About the Presentation:

You’re in a situation with a child, a family, or an adult that causes you to pause and wonder what you need to do to help protect everyone involved.  As we all know, therapists are mandated reporters.  What we don’t always know is:

  • What exactly does it mean to be a mandated reporter?
  • What sorts of behaviors or reports do we need to respond to?
  • Who do we call and how do we make a call?
  • What can we expect when we call?
  • What will a call do to our alliance with our client(s)?
  • How can we best clinically handle a call with our client(s)?
  • Can we NOT call if we think doing so is in the best interest of our client?
  • What might happen to our clients and to us if we do NOT call?
  • What exactly are our legal and ethical responsibilities?

Clinically and relationally, making a report can be a real challenge! We worry about what reporting means for our clients and for us.  This workshop will help you be more aware and better prepared. It will also help you meet your requirement for employment, independent contractor and independent practitioner licensing regulations.


  • Identify 3 situations in which they must report to child protective services.
  • Discuss the clinical, legal, and ethical impacts of reporting and not reporting.
  • Explain what can be expected when making a call to child protective services.
